In the third of our “GMO firsts” series we’ll discuss the AquAdvantage salmon — the world’s first and only genetically modified animal approved for food. The AquAdvantage salmon grows to market weight in about half the time of a typical salmon, improving its sustainability. Join AquaBounty CEO Sylvia Wulf and Greg Jaffe, associate director of policy and regulatory affairs for the Cornell Alliance for Science, as they discuss the development of the salmon and its long regulatory journey to earn approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration.
