Owner Dirk Fucik of Dirk's Fish and Gourmet Shop in the Lincoln Park section of Chicago says all the fish shown here are known to be sold as red snapper: red drum fish, from left, tilefish, parrotfish, another tilefish and actual red snapper. “It’s unfortunate, but this has been going on in the seafood business for a long time,” said Fucik, a veteran fishmonger and a former co-owner of Burhop’s.
