I believe that neither the Atlantic salmon or the Sea bass fit the criteria completely but out of the two, the better option is the Atlantic salmon.
I agree with you that both fish have their pros and cons, and that we need to create a self supplying food supply for the demand that fish farms require.
I agree with you when you said that we do not carry the right to destroy such things for our own good, and that it shouldn’t be an option
I agree with you when you said that the word sustainability is an imperfect term and that there’s not one right way to define it.
I agree that the genetically modified fish should be kept separate from the wild fish so it does not harm the ecosystem, but I don’t believe that genetic manipulation is the most healthy way of a food source.
I completely agree that the best option is of course the natural wild salmon. The more we genetically modify our food, the more harm we are doing to this earth and our bodies, which is something that I did not think about.
Although people have created the domestic salmon to care for their needs, they could slightly change the salmons genetics and resilience that the wild salmon have, and so it wouldn’t affect the Chinook salmon like it did in the book. I agree that people are not thinking of the affects that the domestic salmon are causing for the environment and the wild salmon population.
I agree that between the wild salmon and domestic salmon, that there are advantages and disadvantages to both but that they are ultimately harmful to each other. I never thought about what if the domestic salmon had the same genetic resilience as the wild salmon, but I think that is a good solution or a start of a solution to the problems they bring.
