Sylvia Wulf, president and CEO of AquaBounty Technologies, says there are a lot of benefits to AquAdvantage Salmon. “Our salmon are even more efficient at converting protein so for every pound of feed you get a pound of fish, and our fish grow in half the time of a conventional salmon,” she says.

AquAdvantage salmon will be ready for the market in 2020. The Indiana farm has the capacity to raise about 2.4 million pounds of salmon each year.
