Posted: November 26, 2013 |   Comments

( AquaBounty Technologies, a biotech company, has recently announced that it has been granted permission by Environment Canada to commercially produce genetically modified (GM) salmon eggs at its Prince Edward's Island (PEI) facility.

Prior to recieving the Canadian government department's permission, the production at AquaBounty's PEI hatchery has been for research purposes only. Now, however, GM fish egg production will begin at a commercial scale at the company's facility in Bay Fortune, PEI.

AquaBounty's GM fish have had their genes manipulated to force them to grow at twice the rate as natural salmon.
