Great! Finally!

Canada approves GM salmon for sale. This is the first GM animal approved in Canada, and is modified to grow more rapidly. This means that it needs less time before it’s sold to stores, which means less feed. It also places less pressure on wild fish stocks in oceans since it’s raised in containment. To learn more about this salmon, see this post written by Anastasia: https://www.biofortified.org/2015/11/gmo-salmon/

Edited to add: can’t wait till I can find this in stores in the US. Hopefully, the lemon tree we planted this year will be bearing fruit in time for baked salmon, which is a family favorite.
