FDA opens consultation period for approval of GE salmon

The US Food and Drug Administration has opened a 60 day consultation period concerning approval of GE salmon. For more on GE salmon go to http://www.cban.ca/Take-Action

We will post more on this in the coming days including actions you can take. The consultation period was opened just before Christmas – perhaps to make sure there was limited media attention.

GE Salmon is being developed by a Canadian company called AquaBounty, which is based in PEI. If GE salmon is approved then it will be the first GE animal or fish on the market.

For the FDA releases see below.
