GM SALMON CAN BREED WITH TROUT AND HARM ECOSYSTEM, WARN SCIENTISTS

Genetically Engineered Fish

SUMMARY: "Genetically modified salmon can breed with wild trout to produce a new fast growing fish that can harm natural species, scientists have warned.

The researchers fear that plans to farm a new type of GM salmon that grows faster than normal salmon may result in some of the animals escaping into streams and rivers. They conducted a study to examine the impacts that such an escape would have on natural habitats. They found that the GM salmon, which have been developed by a Canada firm and are expected to be given approval for sale as food in the US, could mate with wild brown trout."
