    AquaBounty should have sold it's invention to Monsanto. Then it would
    have gotten approved no problem.

    Something like that is still not out of the question.

    Just means the bribes aren't up to snuff yet. At one time Monsanto was
    denied approval for their seeds. Not long after they got exclusive approval
    for GM alfalfa with no regulations at all. Same is happening now with sugar
    beets.

    Let me get this straight: growth hormone from a different salmon
    species with an "on" switch provided by a gene from ocean pout?

    What's the "on" switch that will cause the hormone to begin working
    in its human host?

    Can you picture our great-grandchildren all 9 ft. tall and 450 pounds?
    Imagine what it will mean to the NBA!
