Genetic engineering for salmon and fish
MetadataShow full item record
Since 1996 close to two billion hectares have been planted globally to GMO crops. However, to date no genetically engineered economic animal, whether poultry, livestock nor fish has been approved for release and commercialization. This status is about to change with the approval last week by the US Federal Drug Administration (US-FDA) of a genetically engineered (GE) Atlantic salmon under farmed conditions (i.e., aquaculture).
