GM Salmon?

The NY Times has an article today about genetically modified salmon that grow twice as fast as naturally occurring salmon because of  a modification that forces growth hormone production during the winter, when salmon usually stop growing for the season. The FDA is currently deciding if the salmon should be sold for food, and if so, how they should be labelled.

Thoughts?
