Genetically engineered salmon

Yeah, I could blog about my thoughts on genetically modified salmon… But,the thing is, I don’t have thoughts on that….(Hard to believe I know).
No, what caught my eye in this article is that they came up with this TWENTY FIVE YEARS AGO!!!

Genetically engineered salmon has reached the dinner table. AquaBounty Technologies, the company in Maynard, Massachusetts, that developed the fish, announced on 4 August that it has sold some 4.5 tonnes of its hotly debated product to customers in Canada.

The sale marks the first time that a genetically engineered animal has been sold for food on the open market. It took AquaBounty more than 25 years to get to this point.

Twenty five years ago they were splicing this fish together.
Twenty five years ago, they had it all sorted and working well enough to go to the government and ask to sell it.
Wow, that really blows my mind. For some reason I thought all this stuff had only really become possible in the past 10 years or so, that before that it was all talk and theory.
This fish proves otherwise.


One Response to Genetically engineered salmon

  1. Is man finally saying “move over God – we can now do it better”,
    or is it all just driven by greed?
    A line from the article caught my attention – “Neither country requires the salmon to be labelled as genetically engineered.”
    In other words – don’t let the truth be known as that might affect our profits.
    Not good.
