We love wild salmon.
We all know that farmed fish wind up escaping into the wild. We’re more than a little freaked out about genetically modified salmon being farmed in any piece of water connected to…well, any other piece of water. Aren’t invasive Atlantic salmon in the Pacific Northwest bad enough?
Trout Unlimited is leading an effort to let the FDA know that they need to conduct an analysis of the impact of genetically modified salmon before they just go ahead and let the dogs out.
To quote Chris Wood, TU Head Honcho,
“The FDA is close to approving genetically modified salmon for human consumption. This decision could be disastrous for wild salmon in the U.S. and around the world. We simply can’t let it happen.
