GE Fish


Some genetically modified (GM or genetically engineered) Atlantic salmon is now being sold in Canada, without labelling. This is the world’s first-ever genetically engineered food animal. The GM salmon are now in production at an on-land plant in PEI and one in Indiana USA – the first GM fish from these plants could be sold in the spring of 2020. If GM salmon escape into the wild, they will put the future of wild Atlantic salmon populations at risk. Read more about the GE fish.

Many Canadians wrote to the head office of their grocery stores to ask them to keep GM salmon off the shelves. These letters made a difference. All the major grocery chains in Canada now asy that they “have no plans” to sell the GM fish.
