GMO Salmon – Coming to your market soon?

Genetically modified salmon that reach market size in half the normal time are expected to win FDA approval within a year, according to Aqua Bounty Technologies, the company that engineers the grow-fast fish. The company plans to sell their juiced-up eggs to fish farmers. If approval is granted, this will be the first GMO animal to be sold for consumption in the United States.

Will GMO salmon be safe to eat and safe for the environment? “The fish would be no different from a soybean plant or cheese,” said Lisa Dry, public relations officer for Aqua Bounty. “We’re in our 10th year of eating these products…They’re just so prevalent in our diet. I think that speaks to safety.”
