SAN ANTONIO -- Would you eat fish that was genetically engineered? It's the question that's being debated by consumers after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it's safe to eat.
The FDA said salmon whose genome has been altered is not likely to pose a threat to the environment or to people, but critics say the new salmon is a "dangerous experiment," because the FDA is relying on the outdated science to test the fish.
The salmon eggs in question are by a company called AquaBounty Technology. They alter the fish to have it grow faster in order to keep up with worldwide seafood demand.
If this doesn't sound like your type of dish, don't worry just yet. The fish is still in the testing stages, but Aquabounty Technology hopes it will one day be on your dinner table.
