GMO Salmon?

12 November 2014

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 does not hurt to keep hounding these guys before our food system spirals out of control.

Informative Videos: You 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?
