genetically modified salmon

Environmental groups challenge Canada's approval of genetically modified salmon


The company responsible for developing genetically modified (GM) salmon that grows at twice the normal pace is the subject of a new lawsuit in Canada. CBC.ca reports that the Halifax-based Ecology Action Centre (EAC) and the British Columbia-based Living Oceans Society (LOS) are jointly taking Environment Canada to court for allegedly violating the law with its recent approval of the "frankenfish" in question, known commercially as AquAdvantage.
