#Video: #Frankenfish One Step Closer To Market
from therealfoodchannel.com: During the Christmas 2012 holiday, the FDA quietly moved the genetically modified salmon called "frankenfish" one step closer to market. The Food and Drug Administration released draft documents that assessed the environmental risks posed by AquAdvantage salmon, which grow faster than regular Atlantic salmon. The agency found, on a preliminary basis, that the GM fish, produced by AquaBounty Technologies of Massachusetts, posed no significant threat.
