Her pictures showed a box of Ocean Royale frozen fish fillets – but inside, the fillets were only half the size of the box.

“Thought you’d like to see this – shrinkflation,” she wrote, tagging ALDI Australia.

Shrinkflation is typically when a product is downsized but its price stays the same.

However it’s understood the Ocean Royale Golden Crisp Crumbed Fish Fillets have not decreased in size (425g) since the product was launched.

Fellow members of the group took to the comments, annoyed at the size of the fillets.

“They’re more like nuggets than fillets,” said one person.

“Just an absolute rip off,” someone commented.

“It’s happening with everything now!” another wrote.

Others defended ALDI and urged shoppers to check the weight of the product.

“The product is sold on weight, so just because the box isn’t full that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re missing out on anything,” wrote one person.

“They’re still the same weight,” said another.

“They’re 425g, that seems about right. Box is too big,” a third said.
