Indiana will be home to the nation's first genetically engineered raised salmon.
The federal drug administration has declared GMO salmon safe for
human consumption.
The salmon grow about twice as fast.....because of a growth gene inserted from
Chinook salmon into Atlantic salmon.
The hatchery is going to be near Muncie....
It takes about three years for a wild salmon to grow large enough to hit the markets...
but just 18 months for the GMO kind
