Trout Unlimited Threatens Suit Over Genetically Modified Trout

On Friday Trout Unlimited president Chris Wood told CBS news that the group would likely file suit against the U.S. government if it allows the sale of trout that have been genetically modified to grow at twice the normal rate. The trout were deemed safe to eat by the FDA in September.
“‘We have a deep and abiding concern that the FDA, an agency that to our knowledge doesn’t have a single fisheries scientist on it or in it is the inappropriate agency to be determining whether or not there are environmental risks associated with releasing a genetically-modified salmon, or allowing for the production of genetically-modified salmon,'” said Wood.” From CBC News.
