GENETICALLY MODIFIED PET FISH WORRIES FLORIDA ENVIRONMENTALISTS

Genetically Engineered Fish

SUMMARY: "In February, Yorktown introduced the Electric Green Tetra, a genetically modified black tetra fish. Like its zebra fish cousin, the GM tetra is a small freshwater fish that includes genetic material from a fluorescent coral that makes it neon-bright. Under a black light, it glows in the dark.
