You can’t open a newspaper or turn to a blog without someone decrying the horrors of this monster, a salmon genetically modified to grow faster, presumably to keep up with the world’s demand for the oily fish. The FDA claims the fish, a mutant created by the Massachusetts-based AquaBounty, is no different from other Atlantic salmon, which, as we all know, already sucks in comparison to the salmon pulled fresh from the waters in the Pacific Northwest.
And because the Frankenfish is not materially different from the other farmed crap called Atlantic salmon, the FDA claims the agency doesn’t need to put a label on the fish, should it ever go to market for your semi-enjoyment. Oh, by the way, did you hear the fish is only available in female and will have three sets of chromosomes?
So the question for you today, Y&H Nation: Would you eat this mutant?
