Super Salmon: The Industrialisation of Fish Farming and the Drive Towards GM Technologies in Salmon Production
Campbell, Hugh; McLeod, Carmen; Grice, Janet; Herleth, Teresa
This discussion paper argues that there are many complex issues that need to be considered in relation to the intensive farming of salmon in general, and GM salmon, in particular. This paper highlights that animal biotechnology has thus far been dominated by experiments to produce pharmaceutical products, and therefore the production of GM salmon for food presents a radical departure from other animal biotechnologies.
