Frankenfish coming to your dinner table…


Hard to believe that this is an actual plan to deal with salmon demand.  I would never eat these.

Thus the GM salmon is a mere starter in the culinary revolution with other seafood examples being provided by transgenic trout, carp and tilapia which may one day be sold in shops, subject to approval. Consider the tilapia. A modified version has been developed so that it can digest protein more efficiently. The result is a giant fish that can grow up to five times the size of a non-transgenic tilapia.
