Salmon Farming Doesn’t Need Genetic Modification (NY Times)


In response to the FDA's approval of genetically altered salmon, Barton Seaver, Director of our Sustainable Seafood and Health program, wrote an Op-Ed that appeared in the New York Times on December 2, 2015. 

"One often overlooked public health need in the U.S. is to get Americans to eat more seafood. Unfortunately, the F.D.A.'s approval of genetically engineered salmon without labels may frustrate this goal by fueling consumer mistrust of aquaculture, or marine and freshwater farming."
