Handheld sensor technology is revolutionizing fake seafood detection

A major challenge facing the seafood industry is confirming the identity of fish sold in restaurants, seafood markets, and by wholesalers. In 2010, Florida Sea Grant funded research to develop rapid, simple, field-based detection technology that could differentiate grouper from other fish and combat seafood mislabeling fraud. Based on their work, the researchers patented and commercialized a new product (during 2015-2016) that can rapidly test the authenticity of grouper.
