Senate defeats attempt to study genetically engineered salmon

The Senate yesterday defeated an amendment, 45-50, by Alaska Republican Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, to require comprehensive environmental study of what she called a “test tube” salmon before the government approves it for the food supply.

our politicians are weak, plain and simple. so...how long til we expect on of these buggers (or several) to be accidentally released and accidentally reproduce with wild types?

The plan is to have an egg hatchery in Prince Edward Island and send the fry off to Panama for growing, finally returning the fish to the US for consumption. I am ashamed as a Newfoundlander and university student seeing as these frakenfish were created at my university.

The risks of these fish far outnumber the gains.
