P.E.I. Company Gets Approval To Produce GMO Salmon on Commercial Scale

"SOURIS, P.E.I. -- A company that produces genetically modified salmon in Prince Edward Island says it has received federal approval to make eggs on a commercial scale."

"AquaBounty Technologies says Environment Canada has concluded that the eggs are not harmful to the environment or human health when produced in contained facilities.

CEO Ron Stotish says Ottawa's approval is a significant step as it waits for a decision from regulatory bodies in the U.S. before the fish and eggs are available for sale."
