    GMO  GENE MUTATION OF OUR SALMON

    BUYER BEWARE AquaBounty’s GMO salmon 

    Companies can voluntarily label the salmon as genetically modified, or GM, but they don’t have to, the Food and Drug Administration said.

    Genetically Modified Salmon Is Safe to Eat and Can Be Sold .

    15 hours ago – Salmon genetically modified to grow faster is safe to eat and may be sold in the United States, federal regulators said Thursday. Companies can voluntarily label the salmon as genetically modified, or GM, but they don’t have to, the Food and Drug Administration said.

    GM SALMON The fish’s rapid growth will be boosted by the injection of a combination of a growth gene (GH-coding sequences) from the Pacific Chinook salmon and genetic material (the AFP gene) from the ocean pout – a large, eel-like fish – into the fertilized eggs of Atlantic salmon, making the recombined DNA present in cells throughout the body of the fish. The Chinook gene promotes the growth to market size, and the pout gene allows the fish to grow in the winter as well as the summer.

    Ocean pout (Macrozoarces americanus) Description—The ocean pout is blenny-like or eel-like in form, its body about 8 times as long as it is deep (10 to 11 times in young fish up to about 8 inches long), moderately flattened sidewise, noticeably sway-bellied, and tapering backward from abreast of the pectorals, where it is deepest, to a pointed tail. It is very soft, its scales are very small, and its skin as slimy as an eel.

    It’s enough to gag a maggot….
    AND THE FDA SAID, THEY DON’T HAVE TO LABEL IT?

    AquaBounty CEO Says GMO Salmon to be Approved in 2013,
    Tell the FDA No Way!
    Right now President Obama and the Food and Drug Administration are preparing to approve genetically engineered salmon on the market. We have less than 24 hours to tell the Obama administration that you oppose the approval of the world’s first genetically engineered, transgenic, animal.

    Unfortunately, the company behind GMO salmon, AquaBounty Technologies, is already celebrating its pending approval. Two days ago in a Reuters’ story, AqauBounty CEO Ronald Stotish said that he fully expected the FDA to appove AquaBounty’s GMO salmon in 2013.

    “We should have approval before the end of the year,” Stotish told Reuters.Does AquaBounty know something that we don’t? We need to let the FDA know that the American people don’t want to eat GMO salmon –

    Genetically Modified (GM) crops: Top ten facts and figures
    http://knowledge.allianz.com/environment/food_water/?500/gm-crops-facts-and-figures

    The U.S. produces almost half of all GM crops.
    Ninety percent of GM crops, and almost all GM food crops, are grown in four countries—the United States, Argentina, Brazil, and Canada. The U.S. produces almost half of all GM crops.

    THE TEN KEY FACTS and figures about GM crops: what crops dominate; where they are grown and by whom; what they are used for; and where GM technology is going.

    Genetically modified crops feed the world’s livestock, cotton mills, and biofuels – but aren’t popular with consumers. …

    01. The first commercial GM food was the FlavrSavr tomato developed in the early 1990s in California. It was genetically altered so that it took longer to decompose after being picked.

    02. GM crops have been grown commercially since 1996. Since then the GM market has grown 74-fold and spread to 25 countries. The global value of the GM crop market was 7.5 billion dollars in 2008.

    03. There were 125 million hectares of GM crops worldwide in 2008, about 6 to 7 percent of the total cultivated land area. That is an increase of nearly 10 percent on the 114 million hectares in 2007.
    04. The top three GM crops in 2008 were soybeans (53 percent of total GM area), maize (30 percent), and cotton (15 percent). Others include rapeseed (canola), alfalfa, and papaya.

    05. Ninety percent of GM crops, and almost all GM food crops, are grown in four countries—the United States, Argentina, Brazil, and Canada. The U.S. produces almost half of all GM crops.

    06. There are 13.3 million farmers cultivating GM crops. The vast majority are smallholders in China (7.1 million) and India (5 million) who are growing GM cotton.

    07. Almost all commercial GM crops today are genetically altered for one or both of two main traits: herbicide tolerance (63 percent) and insect resistance (15 percent), while 22 percent have both traits. Different genetic traits are combined to create “stacked” GM crops.
    08. In the United States 12.2 million hectares of GM crops (nearly 10 percent of the global total) were used for biofuels in 2008.

    09. According to industry research, in 2007 GM crops saved 15.6 million tons of CO2 through rejduced herbicide and pesticide use and reduced tillage, the equivalent of removing 6.3 million cars from the road.

    10. Future GM crops likely to be commercialized by 2015 include rice, eggplant, potatoes, and wheat. Drought resistant and nutritionally enhanced crops are also expected in the near future.
