Fish farmers in Washington state split over introduction of transgenic salmon

Fish farms in Washington are still not happy with an updated bill that intends to label transgenic fish. Transgenic is a form of genetic engineering where the DNA is “spliced” to create more desirable traits.

Although the new bill only addresses labeling and not the production of these fish, the industry opposes it.

Rep. Cary Condotta, R-East Wenatchee, said that because the production of transgenic fish is already banned in Washington’s marine waters, including a ban in the bill was unnecessary. But people in Washington support the labeling of transgenic fish, he said, so it’s an issue that legislators should address.
