History proves why FDA’s approval of GMO salmon is an environmental disaster in the making

Federal regulators recently made the unprecedented decision to unleash the world’s first genetically-modified (GM) animal life form – a transgenic salmon species that its manufacturer claims grows artificially large, and much more quickly, than natural salmon. And this mutated “Frankenfish,” known commercially as “AquAdvantage,” won’t be labeled on grocery store shelves or in your favorite restaurants, so you won’t even know you’re eating it!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave its official blessing to AquAdvantage after more than five years of hesitation due to overwhelming public opposition. The agency maintains that the fake fish is perfectly safe for humans and the environment, a position that reflects the agency’s longstanding rejection of all independent and contrary science presented by scientists and investigative groups who have repeatedly warned that GM animals pose a threat not only to human health, but to environmental integrity.

Critics warn that if transgenic species like AquAdvantage begin to intermingle with native species – which they most surely will at some point in time – the genetic alterations that result will spread unmitigated throughout the ecosystems in which they live. And once this occurs, the effects will be permanent and irreversible, which is why groups like the Center for Food Safety (CFS) and others are now suing the FDA for its malfeasance in refusing to consider both scientific and public opinion on the matter.

AquAdvantage are only 98 percent sterile at best, which means they could mate with wild species
