Eggs That Will Hatch Into Genetically Modified Salmon Arrive in U.S.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Eggs to grow the first genetically engineered salmon for human consumption in the United States arrived this week in Indiana.

The Atlantic salmon eggs, owned by AquAdvantage of Massachusetts, were shipped from the company’s Canadian hatchery to one in Albany, Ind. The company hopes to begin harvesting in late 2020, spokesman Dave Conley said.

This is the first time a genetically modified food animal will be raised and sold in the United States. The work is being done by AquaBounty Farms.
