Frankenfish or Cheap Yummy Salmon?Grendel_Prime (178874) writes "It's not exactly "free as in beer" but salmon that grows twice as fast must be cheaper in the end right? What would be the ramifications of this GM fish getting out in the wild anyway? Bears would get fatter and have more babies? Would the smaller lifeforms that salmon eat in the wild be devastated, or would their ocean predators grow in numbers, thereby causing other calamities? I'm not sure it's all downside on this one, but there are some possibilities for bad things to happen. On the other hand, whatever you want to call it, human have been "genetically modifying" plants and animals through selective breeding for millenia. Just because the technology is way more advanced than before, that doesn't make it any more dangerous than before."
