chanting the crab

Autumn means hairy crab is here again. A delicacy of the crab world it's much in demand but many unscrupulous crab breeders pass off non-hairy crabs as the real thing.
Anti fake hairy crab measures include special licenses and tagging but each year there's a new warnings about fakes.

Today's lesson: nothing is safe from piracy.

Have you ever heard the story about the white salmon? It's once alleged that this American businessman went to Japan and there he found out about a special bread of salmon. This salmon turns from pink to white when it's cooked. So he ordered a whole bunch of these white salmons and sold it at a premium with the promise, "white salmon - never turns pink". Apparently he shifted a loads of these.
