You are buying fish that are caught in the northern hemisphere, they
float up.  Fish native to the southern hemisphere, especially those
caught west of the time-life date line,  usually float down.  Most fish
from wal-mart come from this region, in fact many are caught by children
to supplement their income from the Nike factory.  If I recall correctly
this information was produced by a government, or maybe not.
