I agree with this, as long as the genetic manipulation is kept an eye on and made sure that it does not get out of hand it could be extremely helpful, but I still do not think that this is the next best idea for the future of our food stock for the world.
I agree with the fact that farming salmon as its upsides but also some downsides to it as well. If people wanted to better stable the salmon population they should also keep track of the salmon they are farming to not let them escape in hopes that this will help the wild salmon have a chance to survive without the domesticated affecting them.
If domestic salmon were to obtain the same genetic resilience as wild salmon my first question would be where would people start? I think that this is a good first approach to try and save the salmon all together. I also think that this could end up badly all together because of people exploiting them.
