STATEMENT: GMO SALMON

Letang, N.B. - Atlantic Canada salmon farmers take pride in growing healthy, fresh and nutritious salmon that is in high demand with consumers.
 
Members of the Atlantic Canada Fish Farmers Association (ACFFA) do not farm or sell GMO salmon, nor are they researching or considering the possibility of raising transgenic fish. Our farmers have no plans to change farming practices, which already produce the highest quality fresh salmon for consumers in Canada and abroad.  Our farmers are committed to sustainability and responsible best practices and a science-based management approach.
