Long story gone short, AquaAvdantage fish and Salmo Domesticus are just about the same, both farmed fish meant for convenience. Other than the fact that they are engineered genetically a bit different. Either way, humans have once again chosen to choose to have the convenience of having Salmon to eat than to restore the wild Salmon populations.
That seems the way it will always go. People don’t choose the right hard path we would rather have something that tastes like the real thing rather than the real thing itself. This is nothing really new the players are the same but it is the same old game still.
While I understand your point, it’s not as simple as just restoring salmon habitats. Many salmon rivers have been blocked by dams, with the runs being exterminated decades ago. Even if the dams were tore out, we would need to restock the rivers, with genetics that were killed decades ago. Greenberg does show this is possible, as with salmon river, but it would take a very long time and cost a lot of money. Furthermore, many of these dams are still in use, and with the current rate of climate change, who are we to be tearing down renewable energy sources? There’s many factors involved, that’s not just simply boiled down to convenience.
