Official Statement: FDA approves genetically engineered salmon

Seattle Fish Co.’s official statement on genetically engineered salmon:

 

Recently the FDA has approved the growth, sale, and distribution of Aquabounty salmon, the first genetically modified animal approved for human consumption.  Seattle Fish Co. has been closely following the development of this product and does not carry this product.   While current FDA rules do not require transparent labeling of Aquabounty salmon, Seattle Fish Co. believes in full transparency of our products. We are fully committed to accurately and honestly labeling all items we carry and distribute. It is important to us as a company and important to our customers.

 

As always, please reach out to your sales rep or info@seattlefish.com with any questions.
