Not surprisingly, the National Fisheries Institute, a nonprofit trade group that represents the seafood industry, found some of the statistics offered by former ‘Speed-the-Plow’ actor Jeremy Piven to be a bit, well, fishy.

The folks at NFI offered their response to Piven’s claims on their own YouTube video (above). They also challenged some of the information presented in the segment’s summary by ‘Good Morning America‘s’ Diane Sawyer.

On Tuesday, William H. Macy (‘Fargo’) took over the role of Hollywood agent Bobby Gould in David Mamet’s play, replacing Norbert Leo Butz, who stepped in to the role after Piven abruptly stepped out last month. Barring any run-ins with mercury, Macy, a veteran of multiple Mamet plays, will close out the limited engagement run on Feb. 22.
