AQUADVANTAGE SALMON PDF

The same company claims that it is also developing genetically engineered tilapia and trout for commercial approval, while others are developing other genetically engineered catfish and salmon. While corporations continue to engineer fish and push for their commercial use, scientific evidence mounts regarding the extraordinary environmental danger these fish pose. Additionally, the human health impacts of eating GE fish are entirely unknown. In approving the AquaBounty transgenic salmon, FDA ignored millions of Americans and more than 40 members of Congress who have expressed vocal opposition.

The approval by FDA is controversial and contested. Is the genetically modified salmon safe to eat? Will I know which salmon is genetically modified and which are not? Not necessarily. There is no regulation requiring that AquaAdvantage fish be labeled as being genetically altered fish. The FDA issued two recommendations asking manufacturers to voluntarily label their products, along with guidance about how to note the genetic changes.

Some groups are calling for mandatory labeling. Corn, soy, potato and even some apple crops are genetically engineered to either produce more or to resist insects and drought. See here for a chart of these crops. Why are some people against GMOs? There are three major concerns about changing genes in wild plants or animals. First, the alterations could change the plant or animal in ways that could be harmful for people who eat them. The changes could also harm the plant or animal and make them less fit to survive.

Finally, on a broader level, introducing new hybrid species could alter the environment in unpredictable and potentially worrisome ways.
