Genetically Modified Salmon Research Articles

12 November 2014
Susan Robens-Brannon

It is difficult to find real studies on GM salmon and related issues, here is a start.  Most of the articles were on the activities and effects on the salmon, almost none were found for human or animal consumption health effects.

Links to research articles on GM salmon:

Large Scale escapes Farmed fish;  AquaBounty promises that the salmon will be contained. They grow the fish in Canada and the Canadians are concerned.  Why grow the eggs in Canada, ship the eggs to Panama and then ship the food to America?  An article on how the farmed fish escape into the wild.

GMO Salmon?

Are you kidding me?  GMO Salmon? AquaBounty is a company who is modifying the Salmon in Panama out of the eyes of U.S. regulators and wants to ship the finished GMO salmon to the U.S.  Recently AquaBounty was fined for violations in repeated environmental regulations in Panama.  Despite of these atrocities, the FDA is secretly trying to approve the frankenfish for sale in the U.S.

AquaBounty's frankenfish is an Atlantic salmon, spliced with genes from an EEL pout and growth hormone from a Chinook salmon.  The result is an aggressive aggressive salmon that produces growth hormone year-round, grows twice as fast, and consume five times more food than wild salmon.  Introducing these traits into the wild population would be disastrous - and irreversible.

Let's see who is on the board the non-executive director Thomas Kasser spent 20 years at Monsanto, Christine T. St. Clare is director at the Polymer Corp.  Investors are not listed but as those who are directors are shareholders.

Stop GMO Salmon by signing and passing along this petition....it does not hurt to keep hounding these guys before our food system spirals out of control.

Informative Videos: You decide...my point, GM Animal and notice how the media down plays the process.  It is only common sense.  No GMO labeling in Oregon and several states across America.  I predict that now that the bill did not pass, we will see more GMO products hitting the market.  Has there been studies on the health safety from non interested parties?



How Safe Would Genetically Modified Salmon be?

I have an entire section on GMO Salmon videos here  Keep up the good fight, don't give up and quit buying GMO products.

Gresham Oregon Police assaulting me for filming drug raid that woke the ...

Military police vehicles used in the middle of the night for a search warrant.  I went from looking at the military vehicles in the Middle East to seeing them here with our local police.  The neighbor who filmed this was arrested for filming.  Our 1st amendment is ignored.  It never made the local news.



This is not normal and it is not okay.  The news should have made a big deal and the people should be protesting this and the militarized vehicles to use against the American people.  We are not the enemy to the police, but watching this makes the police an enemy of me.

Debate Panel on Israel: Norm Finkelstein & Wolf Blizer 2

Discussion on the Israeli/Palestine conflict video 2 - Notice the propaganda uttered by Wolf Blizer. Most people do not read the historical facts on this conflicts and take news leaders opinions as fact. In this video, Blizer encouraged free democratic elections in Gaza. America supported it, Baker etc...and when that happened and they did not like who was elected the conflict increased.

Debate Panel on Israel: Norman Finkelstein and & Wolf Bilzer


Don’t forget Joel Greenberg, an American Jew who served in the IDF, and later served as Jerusalem Bureau Chief. Certainly no conflict of interest there !! Wolf Blitzer of CNN, who earlier worked at a propagandist for AIPAC. wolf blitzer’s views on israel, he was explicit and far from unbiased:

Another New York Times reporter's son in Israeli army

November 1, 2014

We must remember that most of the news agencies are owned by Jewish families and have dual citizenship when you read the news concerning Israeli/Arab conflicts and commentaries.  One cannot help but have the news slanted.  It would be difficult to be objective.

Yet another reporter for the New York Times has a son in the Israeli Defense Forces. Isabel Kershner, a correspondent in the newspaper’s Jerusalem bureau, says that her son is in training in the army. This is the third time in recent years that a writer who covers the conflict for America’s leading newspaper has a son serving in an army that is regularly accused of human rights abuses. On each of those occasions, an outside publication has disclosed the army service.
We asked Kershner about her son after a tip last week sent Weiss to the 2005 memoir by Kershner’s husband Hirsh Goodman. The book states that Goodman, an immigrant to Israel from South Africa, and Kershner, an immigrant to the country from England, have two boys, who were then 7 and 10. Facebook posts by the older boy showed him in uniform and holding a gun with an army unit in June. Kershner responded directly:
In answer to your questions, yes, my 20-year-old son is currently performing his compulsory military service as a citizen of Israel and as required by law. He has been in training so far. My 17-year-old is still in high school.
