Genetically engineered salmon

on Thu Sep 07, 2017 12:30 am
First Genetically engineered salmon was sold in Canada. It’s first time a Genetically engineered animal has been sold for food. It took 25 years to get to this point. The fish, a variety of Atlantic salmon (Salmon salary) is engineered to grow faster than that if it’s non-genetically modified counter part, reaching market size in roughly the half time, around 18 months. It was raised in a tank in a small facility in Panama. It is given growth hormone along with growth regulator elements from two different species.

Wow! Half the time to grow to market size!? That's incredible. Sometimes I wonder if we're interfering with nature too much. I guess we need to watch our actions carefully.

In not a fan of pumping my food full of hormones but I am in favor of abundance. I guess the question of what the long term effects of eating it are, will always remain on my mind.

Neither I am brother, we need abundance and advancement. The fruits we eat today most of them grow by vegetative propagation and drafting.
