Senator Hungry for Genetically Engineered Fish

ALBANY, Ind. — After touring a land-based fish farm that is preparing to raise genetically engineered salmon, U.S. Senator Todd Young is ready to eat.

But he’ll have to wait, even though these are bred to grow faster than conventional salmon.

The first AquAdvantage Salmon eggs aren’t scheduled to arrive from Canada until next month, and they won’t reach market size until the third quarter of 2020.

“Can you invite me in?” Young asked. “We’ll cook one. I’ll eat the first fish.”
