FRANKENFISH - NOT!

Please read if you are concerned about the impact of genetic engineering on wild fish... <!--http--><a href="http://www.time.com/time/magazine/articles/0,3266,39961,00.html" target="_blank">Frankenfish</a><!--url-->

I would like to try to stop the approval of this unless the current escapism problem of tens of thousands of similar salmon is stopped.

Although our mission is to have fun, it's our obligation to protect the indigenous species from harm. At the current rate of farmed salmon escape, the already depressed wild stocks would be seriously impacted by such a mutant.

If anyone has any experience in these matters, please let me know. It's time to do something about this issue.
