Tallahasse, Fla. (WTXL) -- A new nationwide study of fish claims we're not getting what we pay for.

Non-profit group Oceana tested fish at grocery stores, fish markets, sushi bars, and restaurants.

Nationwide, one third of those samples indicated the fish were mislabeled.

Frequently, consumers were paying for more expensive fish but getting

cheaper fish.

The fish most often mislabeled are snapper and tuna.
