Like all introduced fish we must ask, will they out compete the natural species that already live their as eventually some of these fish will escape into the wiled. Will this fishes young eat all the food or young of the other fish in the area.

I really don't get what the problem is. It's just a salmon that grows faster than normal, right?

Eats more. The problem is if this fish gets into the willed will it eat all the other fish or the other fishes food.

Oh and here's the other fun part, even though these are going to end up in the wild...

Anyone who catches these fish and sells them commercially will have to kick back to the owner of the genetic patent...

The FDA is as fake as the fish.

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."

(NaturalNews) FDA Ignores Serious Abnormalities Found in GMO Frankenfish Salmon

At the recent hearings on the GMO salmon many are referring to as "Frankenfish", the FDA noted evidence of abnormalities that had been detected in the fish, including "increased frequency of skeletal malformations, increased prevalence of jaw erosions and multi-systemic inflammation". While such findings would seem to be cause for alarm, the FDA instead dismissed the abnormalities as being "within the range observed in rapid growth phenotypes of non-genetically engineered Atlantic salmon."

In other words, the abnormalities that were found in GMO salmon were consistent with those found in farmed salmon which had been genetically manipulated for accelerated growth through other means.

A closer look at farmed salmon does not paint a picture of healthy fish. For example in Chile, where most of our factory-farmed salmon come from, up to 80 percent of the salmon suffer from a condition called "screamer disease," where severe facial disfigurements lock their jaws permanently open.

In Norway, another major salmon exporter to the United States, "humpback" spinal compression deformities have been found in 70 percent of salmon farm operations. Twenty different types of spinal malformations have been repeatedly found in factory-farmed Atlantic salmon - abnormalities which have been linked to the physiological stress of intensive production.

GMO salmon would be the first transgenic farm animal approved for human consumption. Approval could open up a floodgate of other genetically engineered animals.

Approval of GMO salmon would also likely serve to further entrench unhealthy factory farm operations. Chickens have been bred for such rapid muscling to the extent that billions suffer in chronic pain every year from skeletal disorders, and many of them are unable to even walk.. Hens lay so many eggs that they risk prolapse (laying their own uterus). Up to a quarter of dairy cows are clinically lame and turkeys are so top-heavy that they are incapable of physically mating. (Thanks Humans,...Nice Job!!)

Such animals exist today as a result of genetic manipulation. The creation of transgenic farm animals with genes that are modified through biotechnology would give agribusiness additional tools to stress animals beyond natural biological limits at the expense of their health and welfare.

Ironically, the biotech company that invented the GMO Salmon has argued that the list of health disorders their fish suffer from could be seen as an advantage because "any escapees from containment would be less capable of surviving." According to the company, genetically modified fish grow at such a rate that the metabolic demands might make them less likely to create ecological havoc should they escape into the wild. However, previous studies have indicated just the opposite - finding instead that GMO salmon which escape in the wild would represent huge threats to native salmon populations.

Another major concern of GMO salmon and other organisms is the possibility of transgenic DNA transferring to humans, as we have already seen with genetically modified crops. Despite the concerns, the FDA is widely expected to ultimately approve the "Frankenfish" salmon, and to do so without requiring a GMO label.

They've spliced a unclean fish (eelpout) with a clean one
(salmon). I wonder why?

 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. >>

ah so it lets the fish grow to full size in less time ... Oh if they could work that into other farmed animals in a safe way.

great! Oh and if they could safely work that into humans next so that kids can be fully grown and six foot tall at age 6.

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.

Just another day in the wonderful world eh!
