    AquAdvantagelax: Första genetiskt modifierade djuret att säljas för humankonsumtion2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This year is a landmark in biotechnology history as the first genetically modified animal was sold for human consumption following more than 20 years of assessment by regulatory authorities. The growth-enhanced AquAdvantage® salmon was created in the early 1990s in Canada from which strains were developed by the company AquaBounty Technologies. Commercial application of this technology in land-based aquaculture has occurred in Panama followed by AquAdvantage® salmon being sold in the retail market in Canada. The fish are similar to a domesticated Atlantic salmon but possesses additional genetic material to further enhance growth rates, then are made allfemale and treated to induce sterility in most individuals. Published scientific data is limited on these particular fish, so this report builds mainly upon the documents released by Fisheries and Oceans Canada in 2013 and the US Food and Drug Administration in 2015 as part of their regulatory assessments under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, and New Animal Drug and Environmental Assessments, respectively. Based on these documents, it seems reasonable to conclude that AquAdvantage® salmon are safe to consume and will pose little threat to the natural ecosystem if reared under the contained land-based aquaculture conditions stated in the documents.  AquAdvantage® salmon provides some potential to revolutionize the field of aquaculture, but its future is contingent upon many factors including strain performance in aquaculture relative to conventional domesticated strains which will affect scale of use, consumer attitudes, developments within fish feed production, and society’s view on ecological issues associated with farmed fish escaping into the wild.
