Genetically Engineered Salmon-Feeding the World or Playing with fire?

What do you think about Genetically Engineered Salmon? Is it about Feeding the World or just like Playing with fire?
The genetically altered salmon which is also referred as Frankenfish is a major issue these days.

These fish species are considered to be threat to the human because of the unknown allergic impact on the human body. However, a little study has been completed on this matter but will it be able to adjust to human auto-immune system? Will the human body accept these science made frankenfish creatures? That is the main question here.

Another major concern is, what will be the impact of these creatures escaping into the wild? As they are great eaters, will they let other fish species survive in their territory? That’s a real threat to the native salmon frankenfish species or any other smaller fish species.

In the name of development or invention, are we creating troubles to ourselves? Who had thought of the Asian Carp destroying other fishes while they got these fishes for pond cleaning purpose in America? When they escaped into the wild they are making other fishes almost extinct.

The result of these genetically altered salmon fish or frankenfish has to be seen in the coming days. Let’s hope everything goes well for the human benefit balancing the ecosystem.
