"There's a lot to gain from slapping the wrong label on seafood. The root of the problem is that we've been overfishing our oceans and the result is a deficit of fish. Nonetheless, there is a massive demand for seafood around the world. Most seafood is imported to keep up with demand. There aren't enough of the commonly eaten fish so fishers take other, less commercially appealing, species and pass them off for one of the more demanded types of fish. This problem is further augmented by high profits from fish fraud and very little law enforcement…"

As I see noted in that article, pollock and whitefish are still the usual substitutes.
Have been for over a decade (might be 2 since I first heard about it).

In fish & chip shops in the UK there has been a clear move to selling

Still kicking myself for the meal I had on Catalina Island one night.
It was quite good, e.g. Teriyaki Thresher Shark, but I suspect it was really Swordfish, due to the bones I found in it.
Sharks don't have bones.
Should have insisted on a free meal for fraud, but didn't want to make a scene.
