Farm raised salmon unlikely to escape into the wild?

So we'll be successful keeping the asian carp out of the Great Lakes?

Yum----fish sticks & White Castle meat from the same animal.

Is this a script for a new Predator movie?

Pass the tartar sauce, the Tums & the Charmin.

Americans are fickle eaters? You just wait until the engineered food shortages are orchestrated just like the engineered economic collapse was orchestrated and formerly fickle American eaters will be storming the fences of these farms like swarms of locusts. Seriously though, once the taxpayer funds and establishes the viability of these farms Obama the America hater will order them siezed and implemented in Kenya. He'll tell us he's not out to punish us and he'll point to the similar research he started at thee nation's sewage plants as proof of such good will.

In atlantic canada since Monday Sept 13th, tens of thousands of farmed atlantic salmon are dying. No one knows why. Why is this being kept a secret to the public?

This is ridiculous. We need to stop genetically modifying ANY of our food. Americans needs to learn to eat a balanced and healthy diet. If we all did, there would be no need for any of this.

This kind of salmon is grown in fresh water, so there is no risk of damage to the lakes and streams.

Not only stop engineering our food but stop destroying what nature made in the first place! We completely eradicate one thing off the face of the earth then try to replace it with a fake substitute. Then try to sell it to the world as "bigger and better." No wonder cancers and autoimmune diseases are on the rise.

Good job, Frank - I wondered how long it would take some idiot to bring Obama into this. Congrats on being that guy.

What effect does GMO, the corn, soybeans, sugar beets, and now salmon have on our DNA?
No one knows. Monsanto got all these crops green lighted by the FDA without any independent studies proving they are safe.

I just watched Pirahna 3D and I can say that this is a bad idea> When they mutate into killing machines we'll have to get Ving Rhames to come and kill them, a bunch of college party kids will die....it'll just be a mess. Let's just avoid the whole thing.

Thanks for posting what I was thinking. I was going to invoke how we think we can improve on God's work, instead of saying nature. In the end it's the same point. Childhood cancer rates, asthma, food allergies, etc. are on the rise, yet we still think we are making food better by altering its genetics, injecting meat with growth hormones ... Maybe we're not so smart.

While they are at it could something be done to increase the number of legs on chickens? There never seem to be enough, especially when the grandkids visit.

They've been eating these altered fish for 5 years in China. The results?

The people grew 2 sets of gills...spawned instead of making love...& only

watched "Flipper" reruns on TV. Their favorite NFL team: Miami Dolphins.

Leave da fish alone..alter our politicians instead.

There is no difference between GMO and wild. Almost all of our soy (90%) and majority of our corn (70%) are GMO, and countless other crops. Wheat isn't, and itís on its way out. If we can breed for better genetics (which is all this is) then why not? The science doesn't lie; genetically modifying our food is evolution, just faster.

Farm raised or Gen. Modified. All wrong on so many levels. Did you know the majority of your "farm raised" fish and shellfish comes from Asia (Vietnam)? At least the crap you get in most restaurants does. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

LMFAO @ since the majority of it is GMO, then it's good for us. LOL @ bowing down to Monsanto whilst suckling subsidies.

We can't stop big agribusiness from genetically altering our food, but we don't have to buy it (like farm-raised salmon). If enough people stop buying it, we will save our health, environment, and the future of food in America. I'll keep buying wild-caught salmon in-season even if it costs more.
