GM Fish
Contest Directions: The FDA is approving the mass production, sale and consumption of genetically modified fish, and won't require any special labeling on it. The approval means that many consumers will buy and eat GM fish mistakenly thinking they bought the "natural fish". GM salmon, the first GM fish of its kind - already called frankenfish by its critics - is genetically engineered by AquaBounty Technologies, grows twice as fast as normal salmon, and looks and tastes almost identical to normal salmon. The FDA said it could not find any scientific reasons to ban the production and consumption of genetically modified fish. "GM fish should not pose any health or environmental risks, and consumers probably won't be able to tell the difference. We are sure the [GM] fish is safe", the FDA spokesman said.
