After a decade of intense lobbying from a Maynard, Massachusetts-based salmon production corporation the Food and Drug Administration for the first time has given its seal of approval to a genetically modified animal.
A man caught a 17-pound snakehead fish and may have broken a world record.
Genetic modification raises hard questions that need thorough answers. But, given finite resources to feed a growing population, wouldn't it be great if science could help us grow more nutritious foods with less time, effort, land and money? I'm a farmer, and I say yes.
The genetically modified salmon, created by Boston-based AquaBounty Technologies, is created to grow twice as fast as wild Atlantic salmon -- reaching its full size in 18 months instead of three years.
