Soon, you could be served genetically-modified salmon!

Jun 26, 2019 15:12 IST

In an effort to serve better quality salmon, restaurants in the United States may soon make a shift to genetically-modified salmon. An Associated Press article highlights the work that is being carried out by an Indiana-based company, AquaBounty with their growing population of modified salmon. While its salmon won’t be available for sale until late 2020, AquaBounty is the first company to receive U.S. approval for consumption of its GMO animals. To produce its fish, AquaBounty has injected Atlantic salmon with DNA from other fish species that make them grow to a full size in about 18 months, which could be about twice as fast as regular salmon.
