Here in the US-the FDA just approved it okay to let GMO salmon into the consumer food chain.

Read below:

From:Wenonah Hauter
Executive Director
Food & Water Watch

GMO salmon will be the first GMO animal ever allowed in the food system, anywhere in the world. The FDA has an inherently flawed process for approving genetically engineered animals, and the agency has been shockingly lenient with the quality of the science it is requiring of AquaBounty, the company behind GMO salmon.

Unfortunately, the FDA didn’t do an independent, scientific assessment of the risks that GMO salmon pose to your health, the environment and animal welfare. And what makes this approval even worse is that the FDA won’t require GMO salmon to be labeled. This fact, combined with the fact that Monsanto and its allies in Congress are trying to prohibit GMO labeling entirely, make it especially urgent that we keep GMO salmon off of our plates.
 You  can sign this petition ask President Obama and Congress to stop GMO salmon from entering our food supply
