I ran across an article on the topic of genetically modified salmon today i thought i would share… Apparently these salmon can grow into a full size fish in half the time of a non GMO fish. Aqua Bounty is the company engineering the salmon, they are out of Waltham, MA. Would you eat these fish? I probably would… we eat genetically modified grains/corn all the time without even realizing it.
If the FDA approves their sale, they will be the first animal to be sold in the united states which has been genetically engineered.
(EatOcracy writes) The United States’ Food and Drug Administration is in the midst of public hearingsto determine if it will approve AquaBounty Technologies’ application for fish spawned from genetically engineered salmon eggs to be allowed for use as food. These “AquAdvantage®
Salmon” grow into full-sized fish in half the time that it would take a regular salmon, and if approved, would become the first “transgenic” or genetically engineered animals to be approved for human consumption.
What makes this story interesting, she trades on the London Stock Exchange. Currently trading for about 19 a share. If the FDA does approve the sale of Aqua Bounty’s engineered salmon, the stock might be worth stuffing away. The ticker is ABTX.
