Frankenfish

Posted by   Kristina Miller:   My mom told me that a story ran the this morning on the Today show, talking about a fish that was being genetically engineered. This fish turned out to be the Atlantic Salmon. Scientist are making these fish speed up growth so that they are at adult size four times faster than if they were out in the wild. I feel that this is another one of those things that should not be messed with!

  1. We often do not fully understand the repercussions of our technology before we use it. Let’s hope that these fish are not permitted to escape and interbreed with wild populations! Thanks for posting!
