Very well put Ron. While i believe genetic engineering has found a stable place within the agriculture industry, I’m not sure i feel the same way when it comes to livestock. Selective breeding is one thing but genetically altering a species is another. I think our efforts would be better off pursuing a viable option to the way we farm fish. One of the main issues i see is having farmed fish sharing habitat with wild stocks. Producing an economically efficient closed system would benefit farmed fish and wild fish more so than genetic engineering in my opinion.
