U.S. studies out genetically modified salmon or will go on the table

Editor's note: At present, GM foods are still in great controversy, and many countries have listed them as banned. As a country that allows GM foods, the production of GM soybeans and corn in the United States is very high, but for animals like fish This is the first time that the ban is on, which is of great significance. The eggs of this fish are currently cultivated on Prince Edward Island, Canada, and are farmed in Panama. The FDA believes that genetically modified salmon is unlikely to escape and breed in the wild. According to relevant regulations, FDA must fully solicit public opinions and comments in the next 60 days before deciding whether to grant permission for this fish to enter the US market.

After years of research, an Atlantic salmon that has obtained other fish genes and hormones not only grows twice as fast as ordinary salmon, but also grows much larger than normal salmon, but it has always been able to put it on the table There is a lot of controversy. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an assessment report on December 21 stating that this genetically modified salmon will not pose a threat to the environment, as the safety of food is "as safe as ordinary Atlantic salmon."

At present, there is still a huge controversy on GM foods. Many countries have listed them as banned. For example, Russia, Japan and Peru completely ban GM foods; the EU explicitly bans several types of GM foods and strictly requires the use of GM foods in food Specific ingredients. As a country that allows genetically modified foods, the production of genetically modified soybeans and corn in the United States is very high, but the ban on animal genetically modified foods such as fish is the first of its kind and is of great significance.

Two years ago, the FDA had convened scientists, business people, and others to discuss the potential impact of genetically modified salmon. The opposition mainly came from the strong opposition of food safety activists, environmental organizations, traditional salmon farming business owners and some members of Congress. Alaska Democrat MP Mark Bergic issued a written statement on the same day as the FDA stated that he will work with his colleagues in Alaska to make every effort to give consumers a clear understanding of the difference between laboratory science projects and wild and environmental tolerance. The non-profit organization, the Center for Food Safety, also sharply criticized the FDA, calling its decision "immature and misleading."

Supporters believe that it is impossible to see the difference between genetically modified salmon and wild salmon. Moreover, it can also increase the world's food supply, reduce prices and reduce resource utilization. In order to reduce public concern and opposition and avoid the ecological and environmental impacts of genetically modified fish, the eggs of this fish are currently cultivated on Prince Edward Island, Canada, and the breeding is in Panama. The FDA believes that genetically modified salmon is unlikely to escape and breed in the wild.

According to relevant regulations, FDA must fully solicit public opinions and comments in the next 60 days before deciding whether to grant permission for this fish to enter the US market.
