Genetically engineered salmon has reached the dinner table.
AquaBounty Technologies, the company that developed the fish, has already sold 4.5 tonnes of its FAKE FISH in Canada.
This is the first time that a genetically engineered animal has been sold for food on the open market. And proably not the last one!
The new variety of Atlantic salmon is engineered to grow faster than its non-genetically modified counterpart, reaching market size in roughly half the time — about 18 months.
The ish will be now raised on Canada’s Prince Edward Island, where local authorities gave the green light for construction in June and in Albany, Indiana, where they still need the green light from US regulators.
Unlike in Canada, the United States haven’t allowed the salmon’s entry into the marketplace. A good thing I would say! It’s a fake fish.
