It was this big...honest!

An article dated Jan 11th 2006 suggests that the FDA is getting ready to approve a new genetically modified salmon which grows twice as fast as normal farm-raised salmon. The way this is done is by altering a gene that controls the production of growth hormones. The company behind the technology is Aqua Bounty, and they say that the modification of the growth hormone does not affect taste or raise any health concerns.
