Genetically Engineered Fish for Dinner

This super salmon is making the news.  A Massachusetts company wants this genetically engineered salmon to be sold in the market and if ever FDA approves that this is safe, it would be the first modified animal to be served on dinner plates.

AquaBounty says that the Atlantic salmon is not cloned but modified by adding growth hormone from a Chinook salmon and it is kept active by using another gene from an ocean pout.

What do you think?
