US GM salmon company AquaBounty has been fined for regulatory failures at its Panama plant in a move that could set back approval of GM meat and fish in the US, reports IPS
Officials in Panama have fined the local facility of a US biotechnology company for a series of permitting and regulatory failures around a pioneering attempt to create genetically modified salmon.
The experiments are being carried out by researchers for AquaBounty Technologies, which currently has an application with the US government to sell genetically modified (GM) salmon filets in this country. If regulators approve that application, AquaBounty’s salmon would be the first genetically modified meat sold for human consumption anywhere in the world.
