AquaBounty: Man-made salmon-like fish clears last FDA approval hurdle- Yum, Frankenfish!
I just see all sorts of good things coming from this. /Sarcasm off

---

"On Friday, the US Food and Drug Administration released an environmental assessment report regarding a salmon-hybrid developed in the laboratories of AquaBounty. The FDA must wait two months before they make final their decision regarding the fate of the frankenfish, but through their study they have determined that the genetically engineered animal, the “AquAdvantage,” is safe enough to be sold.

The fish, a hybrid of the Pacific Chinook salmon and a ray-finned creature called the eelpout, is engineered to grow twice as normal as traditional salmon. Once the frankenfish is approved for good, AquaBounty will be able to offer meatier fish able to feed more people.
...

“This is a radical new technology. We need very good, careful, close regulation, and we just don't have that. We can't be assured of the safety of any of these genetically engineered organisms,” he said."

We can only hope that they will run out of money:

<<< Developing the frankenfish has so far cost AquaBounty nearly two decades of research and tens of millions of dollars. Only weeks ago, though, the very fate of the fish was put at risk.

While awaiting news from the FDA in early December, AquaBounty CEO Ron Stotish told the Associated Press that length delays had nearly drained the company from all their money.

"It's threatening our very survival," Stotish told the AP. "We only have enough money to survive until January 2013, so we have to raise more. But the unexplained delay has made raising money very difficult." >>>

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30641050


<< The AquaAdvantage salmon has an added growth hormone from the Pacific Chinook salmon that allows the fish to produce growth hormone all year long. The engineers were able to keep the hormone active by using another gene from an eel-like fish called an ocean pout that acts like an “on” switch for the hormone. Typical Atlantic salmon produce the growth hormone for only part of the year. >>

So then you had better stay away from corn, soy, tomatoes, canola oil, potatoes, flax, papaya, squash, sugar beets, rice, dairy products from animals fed with GM grain, well, you might as well just stop eating.

My solution is to eat organic. It's very expensive but cheaper than being chronically sick. (Did you know that the cafeteria at Monsanto headquarters serves only ORGANIC food??)

You could also grow your own food, or some of it, using heirloom seed. Buy organic grains in bulk. Cook with coconut oil.

You can also find some foods at the dollar stores that are imported from Europe (which does not allow gmo's).

Salmon have scales. Small, but they got 'em. Those f**kers have teeth, too. I tried to feed one of them at the hatchery a cracker once, and it nearly took my hand off. Never under estimate the dangers of the wiley salmon.

I saw this yesterday.

Eating anything genetically-modified to double growth cannot be a sound practice.

Look at the debacle created by the cross-pollination of GM crops to non-GM crops; has science NOT learned anything from this?

Then there's the growth-hormone issue. Have we not learned anything about the use of growth-hormones in food...first exposed by Geraldo Rivera some 50 years ago?

================

Well, I don't eat fish anymore, anyway. Too much mercury, too much radiation...there's no way to really know what you're getting.

We are heading towards a time when NO FOOD is safe, organic or otherwise.

THAT is what modern 'science' has done for humanity.

It's a conundrum, which consumers cannot do anything about.

So let me guess.....They will/have patented the fish that will sneak out into open waters and mate with other fish. Then they will claim ownership of all the fishies in the waters. That is the least of our worries on this one.

It does make me wonder if the radiation in the oceans and the frankenfish have any connection.

Kill off the natural fish with radiation and then replace with frankenfish that probably have all kinds of dangerous things waiting for human consumption.

This has all the plot elements for a bad Syfy Channel movie.

The fish is genetically modified with a Gene from another Salmon and a Gene from a eelpout. Both Growth genes, so the fish achieve a massive size in a very little amount of time.
