GE salmon eggs

Environment Canada has approved the commercial production of genetically modified (GM) Atlantic salmon eggs Prince Edward Island (PEI), the decision was announced on November 23 in the Canada Gazette. The U.S. company AquaBounty has asked for approval of the GM Atlantic salmon for human consumption in the U.S., based on a plan to produce the GM fish eggs in Prince Edward Island (PEI), Canada and ship them to Panama for grow-out and processing.
The company claims the salmon grow to market-size twice as fast as other farmed salmon. The salmon are engineered with a growth hormone gene from Chinook salmon and genetic material from ocean pout (an eel-like creature). If approved, it would be the first GE food animal in the world.
