TACOMIC TIP:

"Is there any chance you could create a comic of a Sasquatch, genetically engineered with a salmon and Monsanto executive?"
from http://yeson522.com/fish/
  • GE salmon are created in a laboratory by combining genes from Pacific Chinook salmon and an eel-like Ocean Pout and inserting them into the genome of Atlantic salmon.
  • The addition of anti-freeze DNA and growth hormones from these other species allows GE Atlantic salmon to grow year round and nearly twice as fast, according to the developers.
  • While not available yet, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration is recommending approval of AquaBounty’s GE salmon for sale in U.S. markets. At least 35 other species of GE fish are currently under development.
