SIGN NOW! The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced it is extending for 60 days the comment period for the draft Environmental Assessment (EA) and preliminary Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) pertaining to AquaBounty Technologies’ application for AquAdvantage Salmon. The comment period now runs until April 26, 2013. PLEASE LEND YOUR VOICE TO THIS IMPORTANT MISSION – take advantage of this extended commenting period and forward this important petition to all of your close personal friends and family!
AquAdvantage Salmon are Atlantic salmon that have been genetically engineered to grow larger than farmed salmon, and in less time. One large concern is that the company admits at least 5 percent of the female salmon are not sterile, and they will breed with wild salmon, which means in time there will be no non-GMO salmon in the oceans.
Sign the petition to tell the Food and Drug Administration not to approve GE salmon AND, if the Obama Administration insists on approving these genetically engineered fish, it should require the fish to be labeled!
