The Great Salmon Debate

There's no question that the genetically modified salmon we show you on Wednesday is bigger. The question is whether it's better - both in taste and in healthiness.

While the Food and Drug Administration focuses on that healthiness part, we're asking you to focus on the food part.  Assuming it'll taste like - well, salmon - would you eat the genetically engineered fish?  Or would you prefer to stick with the natural kind?

    To me the Recession is still not over because the economical crisis is still a problem.It's certainly true that there is some tension between the serious (and very real) that folks are seeing all around them and the NBER's "official" recession call.

    To me Modified Salmon always tastes different than salmon that wasn't modified. Why do they even modify salmon?

    I would not eat the generically engineered salmon because food like that can cause obesity (which is already a problem). Not to mention the other health problems like unexpected health effects.

    I think the Recession isn't over because my family and probably the people in the city I live in don't shop that much still.

    Anything modified is nasty and inhumane. Why don't the animals start making genetically modified people and see how they like it?

    I would much rather eat regular salmon. Genetically modified salmon, is just unnatrual.

    The recession is not over, there is still lots forclosures and people without jobs. This tiny increase in jobs and home sales doesn't mean its over quite yet.

    i wold stick with the non-modified. haven't we tweaked with nature enough?

    I would prefer the natural fish over the modified version anyday. Because the natural salmon tastes better and it is probally healthier.

    I would not eat the salmon because motified foods always taste different from the original product. Plus the people would think motified would mean healthier and less calories some people who love salmon would now start eating it in epic portions and are obesity problem would keep growing bigger.

    Well I think I would not try it because it might have been caught from the gulf of Mexico. I also think that people should not mess with nature and not change anything because of all the things we have all ready done. I also would not like it because in the state we live in it would take time for the fish to get here so they wouldn't taste as good so I say I would not eat the salmon.

    September 21, 2010 at 7:39 pm |
  14. Charlotte

    I would not eat genetically modified salmon, because to genetically modify them you have add something extra to them or their natural habitat and that I think would not make them real salmon anymore. It would also be putting the chemicals or the things they used to genetically modify then into us because we're eating the fish and I wouldn't want whatever they use on the salmon in my body.

    September 21, 2010 at 7:41 pm |

    I would eat the natural kind of salmon.

    I would not eat it, because there may be some funky side effects, and anyway if salmon is already good and nutricious, why modify it ?

    I would if it were checked for diseases and other potential health problems. It could have extra of the omega vitamin, that we need a lot of but don't get.

  19. Jillene

    Well I personally like salmon and my family does too. But I don't think that I would ever really eat genetically made salmon. Eventhough it may taste the same, i just think thats not natural.....haha made a pun!!

    September 21, 2010 at 8:22 pm |
  20. Sidney

    This is not a good idea. I would never order this. It could be dangerous to a human being to eat anything that has not been tested or approved to be eaten. It's probably not healthy, let alone tasty, so I wouldn't recomend eating this.

    IT can taste as good as it wants i wouldn't take a chance in eating it because it can trigger any kind of health problems.

  22. Austin

    I would not eat it because it gives me the feeling of "hey, someone has just been fiddling with my food". I don't care if it's bigger or healthier until I see more results and research. Once I see that, then maybe, just maybe, I will eat it.

  23. Vallen

    I would not eat genetically enginered salmon because it is un-natural and I don't know what's being done to it to make it the Way it is. I think the un-modified salmon would be just as good as the new one, just not as big.

    September 21, 2010 at 8:38 pm |
  24. Kiersten

    Well in my own opinion i would not eat that first beacause i dont eat fish and second i could get sick from it because of desices it mat have.

    I wouldn't eat genetically engineered salmon. Who knows what kinds of problems may arise from them, obviously, they will definitely not be perfect. Even if the FDA approved its healthiness these salmon might cause some new allergy that will sweep across the nation, and a whole bunch of people will end up being allergic to them.

    I think the recession is definetly still on. If the prices on houses were low in 2007, how come the prices are higher now, because the recession. Nobody is buying big these days unless they won the lottery. So my opinion is the recession is still on. 🙂 wooo! go RMS

  30. Tyler

    The purpose of genetically altering it is to improve the fish, make it meatier. And more meat could mean less demand, which could decrease the possibility of overfishing. However due to the fact it is genetically altered there is a possibility it could lead to some health problems.

    September 21, 2010 at 9:14 pm |
  31. Matthew

    I think that modified salmon may harm humans. For many years, people have been eating regular salmon, and these people have survived. Modified salmon may make it look bigger and better, but for the most part, I think the original salmon would be healthier.

    September 21, 2010 at 9:15 pm |
  32. Mitchell

    i wouldn't eat the salmon, we don't need to engineer everything to be better. Sure, somethings can be better if fixed, but food is one thing not to be messed with. Past cases have ended badly.

  35. Nat

    Not I. A) I'm a vegetarian who doesn't eat seafood, and b) anything natural is SO much healthier than anything that isn't. Usually.
    (Seriously, though, genetically modified salmon might as well become its own species... look at carrots and silk worms! Carrots, well, were originally white, and we STILL can't tell what the heck silk worms originated from). Sheesh...

    If they do apove it .I still wouldn't eat it because of all the other things that could be wrong about it. Jnd all the illnesses that it could have.just to be on the safe side DO NOT EAT IT!!!!!Unless you want to.

    I myself would stick to the natural kind, but if the genetically engineered fish was cheaper, and was approved by the FDA, it would be a good option for people who'd like to save money.

  47. Trenton

    I would probably not eat the salmon because it would contain substances some people may not know and what it can do to the human body. If i knew what was in it and what it did, then i would probably eat it. Who knows, it may be the next big thinng or it could cause several deaths or illnesses. We will just have to wait and find out

    I don't really eat salmon, but even if I did, I wouldn't eat genetically engineered salmon. It doesn't sound healthy, and it might have diseases.

    i think i could accept because i believe it will be harmless to our body .
    On the other hand, with the growing of world's population. People can't get enough things to eat.

  50. Gilbert

    Why would they make genetically altered salmon, well no I wouldnt, its genetically altered which means probably different body parts and different growth rate and that means different tastes. Although, it would probably be more meater.

    September 22, 2010 at 1:56 am |
  51. Laurence

    the salmon that is being modified would taste different, and it would not have the same vitamins than the fish in the water. Every thing is good when it is from the real animal. i would not eat the salmon, except if it is the only fish left on earth. aurevoir!

    September 22, 2010 at 6:50 am |
  52. Emily

    I would not eat it because we don't know enought about the tests done on it. I'll stick with the natural kind for a while. It's kind of unnerving that they can make fish bigger. Why can't we just keep things natural...?

    September 22, 2010 at 7:32 am |
  53. ashley

    I believe several more test should be performed before exposing society to a potentially dangerous food. The FDA should also focus on the long term effects of the genetically altered salmon. However, i do believe this could be a great success for salmon production considering the growth rate and the size.

    September 22, 2010 at 7:35 am |

  57. Christine

    I don't want to eat because I think research hasn't done enough.
    We don't know it is really safe. There has no guarantee of health for human body. It need to take a long view.

    September 22, 2010 at 8:27 am |
  58. Nikki

    There's no way I would eat the modified salmon. Scientists need to do more long term testing on it to make sure that it's completely safe. Right now we don't know what it could do!

    September 22, 2010 at 8:32 am |

  60. Amanda T

    I think that it would be interesting to try it but fo rme it would have to be aprroved by the FDA for me to try it. I would like to see it in person and feel it though.

    September 22, 2010 at 8:39 am |
  61. Amanda

    I would never eat any type of food that hasn't been tested very well. It's not worth getting sick!

    September 22, 2010 at 8:40 am |

    I would try the salmon if it was FDA aprroved

    September 22, 2010 at 8:42 am |
  63. Ginger

    The problem is, there is probably a larger population of fish and the salmon might have eaten something different causing it to make itself larger. No, I wouldn't eat it, I don't eat fish, and there could be a disease inside of the fish.

    September 22, 2010 at 8:43 am |
  64. Riley

    I wouldn't eat it because it could be unhealthy , and like they said on the news, it wasn't tested yet.

    I would not eat the generically engineerd salmon, iIt could cause problemswith our health because I don't think they've tested the fish enough to eat it.

    September 22, 2010 at 9:18 am |
  67. arjen

    well for me i 'd better wait and see if it's really edible. maybe there should be some tests to show it's ok and safe to eat it and make us all convinced. And i personnally don't think there can be diseases on the fish but as they're twice bigger, they're sure to consume more food, thus making other smaller fish hungry. So we should repect the natural laws before we think about increasing production efficiency. And according to what i've learnt in biology, a genetically modified species may produce other kinds of protein in their cells... sounds terrible

    September 22, 2010 at 9:18 am |
  68. Kaylee

    I wouldn't eat the salmon because you have no clue what has been put in that fish. I don't even eat fish or any kinds on seafood. It can carry tons and tons of diseases, that can really hurt or infect your body. I still think no don't eat it!

    September 22, 2010 at 9:18 am |

  73. Rachel

    I wouldn't eat it in a life time! We could have problem with the salmon and have no salmon ,so other animals will have almost nothing in their diet. Also, people can get sick if they do not test it first. I think we have a problem now.

    September 22, 2010 at 9:24 am |

    It is Natural for me, genetically engineered fish are just another way to say that what you are eating is pumped full of some drug that will make fish grow bigger and have more meat on their bones. It will taste like a drugged up fish fillet.

    I would rather prefer to eat the regular salmon.The reason being is because the genetic salmon i think would have other chemicals in it to be or get bigger. Who knows the genetic salmon could be dangerous to eat So i would rather eat the regular salmon because i would know that it is safe to eat.

  102. Bobby

    Yes if the FDA deemed the fish safe to eat. The natural kind is better but getting salmon all across the US/World isn't economically smart. I would like the FDA to test thoroughly to make sure that is doesn't cause adverse health effects.

    The salmon might have contain some kind of drug for it to get so big I wouldn't eat the salmon. One reason is i could get a disease, get drugged, and many other things so be careful eating the salmon. Hopefully the salmon didn't come from the Gulf.

    I would only eat the salmon after the FDA approved it. I think the modified salmon is a good idea because it would help prices go down on the fish because they would not have to fish for it as much.

    I personally think that putting hormones in everyones food is nasty. If you study how many kids have early puberty versus kids without early puberty it is because of geneticly processed foods.

  113. Kristen

    I wouldn't eat genetically modified salmon even if it would save my life! It could have a disease that I would be more than happy never to get.

    I would eat the smaller fish. It's good.

  115. lanier$

    I think salmon should be a fish.Just because it's bigger then any fish it should not be treated like that.I also think that we should tested first then decide what they think.

    September 22, 2010 at 11:57 am |
  116. Mrs. Z's class

    NO WAY!! We think that eating a genetically altered fish could have serious heath risks that are unknown to the scientist who altered there genes and to those who eat it.

    September 22, 2010 at 11:59 am |
  117. Maddi

    I'm not sure if I would eat the genetically engineered salmon or not. While the salmon could provide more meat per fish, thus saving thousands of other normal and smaller fish, there could be dangerous side effects we haven't found yet in this new, larger salmon.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:02 pm |
  118. Liya

    Well personally I would not want to eat any engeenired fish. The fish that would be healthy for you would be to eat a natural,fresh kind of fish. Eating the wrong type of fish(especially fish) could really upset your stomach and we all Know that we don't like upset stomachs. So now we know what type of fish prefered!!!!!

    September 22, 2010 at 12:03 pm |

    We think that it would very dangerous to your health.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:03 pm |
  120. matt and kayden

    We think that it would very dangerous to your health.I would not eat it because i dont know what they did to make it so huge.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:05 pm |
  121. Brandon

    i think it is weird to eat active fish because we dont know if its safe. I think people should just eat regular fish like everyone else!!!!!!!

    September 22, 2010 at 12:07 pm |
  122. jordan

    I would not eat it until proven safe. Once the scientists have enough
    positive data I would eat it.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:08 pm |

    the thing with the salmon does not look healthy and does not seem right

    September 22, 2010 at 12:09 pm |
  124. mallory&jennah

    We would NOT eat the salmon because it might be posion or may have some kind of substace that is not ment for the human kind to consume. this samon is obvisoly bigger than the other and it must be bigger for some reason,

    September 22, 2010 at 12:10 pm |
  125. abbigail

    i think that this samon thing a good idea because it will give americans more food. i think that it will be a good thing to do because it will also help other people get more jobs because people have to fish and that creates workers.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:10 pm |
  126. Matt and Derek

    We wouldn't eat because you don't what chemicals they used to modify it. Plus you don't know what the fish ate so that could be harmful to humans. Maybe there could be poisoness things to humans but not to salmon.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:11 pm |
  127. jordan

    If the scientists do not have positive information about the salmon I wouldnt eat it over my dead body.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:12 pm |
  128. colin and gordon

    me and gordon think that modified fish is a good idea for fish compenys and it will help us with the resetions because it will probebly be sold for much less in bigger packegs and more people will buy it. but if the heybrid fish gets bigger when it eats more they will take away the food for regular somon so they might die and other compenys that sell regular somon might run out of buissnes.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:14 pm |

    no because there could be a deses in it

    i'll eat it every once in a while but i cant think of me eating prossesed salmon i don't like eating salmon thats been prossesed i'll stick to eating natual salmon it better for your health

  132. Mckinnon

    I would eat the samon because I love fish and as long as the clone dose not have electronic parts in it I would love to try it thank you for your time.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:18 pm |
  133. Jennah&Mallory

    We agreed that we would not eat this salmon. The salmon may be poision or might have a disease that is not ment for the human body to consume. We could get the disease and become very very sick if we ate the salmon. this would not be a very wise choice just in case there is somthing wrong with this fish.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:18 pm |
  134. Tiana

    I would rather eat the natural kind then the other one because to me the natural one is more healthy an is a lot better.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:19 pm |
  135. Hannah

    I wouldn't eat generically engineered salmon because it has a lot of fat in it and there's already a high percentage in obesity in the U.S.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:19 pm |
  136. Jordynne and Amber

    we would not eat it because it could give you a disease.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:20 pm |
  137. Chance

    I don`t like fish at all. But if it is deep fried i will eat it. Everyone in my family likes fish but me. If i had to choose i would go with natural salmon. Beacuse you know it is healthier for you. But how do you know that for sure the bigger fish is better for you. They might be streching the truth. So NATURAL FISH ROX

    September 22, 2010 at 12:22 pm |
  138. gordon and colin

    me and gordon think that that is a good idea because it might help the resetion because if the store sells it in bigger packegs for more than your mony. but if the heybrid fish is bigger its going to eat more and will take away food from the regular samon.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:23 pm |
  139. Daryl

    I would not eat that big over sized genetically Engineered fish

    September 22, 2010 at 12:33 pm |
  140. Gullette's class

    We decided that we would not eat the salmon because it might make us sick. We think that there have not been enough people that have eaten it to see if it would or would not make humans sick. The government needs to test the effects of eating this fish more before they sell it to us.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:45 pm |
  141. Isaac

    I dont eat salmon so I guess i probably would say no. It could be drugged.
    I personally would not eat fish that have been beefed up by something other than the water and food.

    No i wouldn't eat generically engeering salmon because it could cause diseases. It might also cause the salmon to taste different. It might also cause obesity in some people.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:51 pm |
  144. Ryan

    If the food was safe and it tasted fine, Why not? because it has been "genetically engineered" does not mean people have to turn up their noses if it was one of the few things you would get to eat would you say to your parents i'm not eating that?

    September 22, 2010 at 12:53 pm |
  145. John

    "It could have a disease"? So could wild salmon, but since these would be raised in monitored land based fish farms it's actually less likely they would. It could "cause obesity" – based on what? If you had actually bothered to research this rather than acting as if you know something then you'd know the only noticeable difference found in the fish's nutritional makeup is a greater amount of vitamin b6.

    Yes there needs to be study on genetically altered foods before they go to market, but that doesn't mean people who know nothing about them should act like they do.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:54 pm |
  146. Mr. James' Class

    The majority of my class wouldn't eat the genetically engineered salmon. Granted most of them don't eat fish anyway. I would try the fish and see if I liked it or not. If it tasted the same as the other salmon, then I would continue to eat the genetically engineered salmon.

    September 22, 2010 at 1:04 pm |

    I think I would just sick to the natural kid of fish. I wouldn't eat a fish that was put chemicals in. I live in a place where we get it naturaly.

    I live in a fishing village in Alaska,just bye the wild Alaskan salmon!

    September 22, 2010 at 1:08 pm |
  150. Kelvan

    NO! There could be harmful things inside them that we dont know of or to small to see, it is a good idea to double there size but there are also side affects. The fish could be fine but until they examine them to make sure there ok to eat i will consider them.

    September 22, 2010 at 1:09 pm |

    Kailib says "It would be a good idea for them to run more tests"

    Aderrick says "Only if someone else tries it first"

    I do not think the ressions over because there are still alot of families out there struggling, and there's also alot of jobless people.

    September 22, 2010 at 1:17 pm |
  153. Shae

    I personally would never eat genetically modified salmon. There isn't a need for more food in the country, and nature did not intend the salmon to grow to larger sizes. It isn't fair to the salmon to alter its genetics for our benefits, either.

    September 22, 2010 at 1:21 pm |
  154. Anna

    I would definitely NOT eat it! I don't know if it is me, but eating salmon that has been genetically engineered doesn't appeal to me.

    September 22, 2010 at 1:42 pm |
  157. tyler

    i would never ever eat it. you could get really sick from it. the only way i would ever eat genetically altered salmon is if i was starving.

    September 22, 2010 at 1:44 pm |
  158. Tim

    To me the genetically engineered part isnt the problem, we already eat genetically engineered plants and it doesn't seem to be a big deal. on the other hand all they are doing is making it so that less fish will make more meat and that could severely alter salmon's place in the food chain.

    September 22, 2010 at 2:01 pm |
  159. Luke

    I'm afraid the salmon would mutate me.

    September 22, 2010 at 2:02 pm |

    I think it would not be safe because it could have cemicals in it that may make you sick.

    yes i would

    September 22, 2010 at 2:09 pm |
  162. Hermann

    I would eat the genetically modified salmon because it is most likely made up of the same parts as a natural salmon. I think people are only afraid of it because they don't know. People fear what they don't know.

    I wouln't eat the salmon because it might have a disease in them and they might be bad for you because they haven't been tested to see if they're okay to eat yet. So im going to stick with the natural kind.

    September 22, 2010 at 2:43 pm |
  167. Benji

    I think that as long as the salmon turns out to be healthy, I'll give it a shot! After all, if the salmon are bigger, that means more food for impoverished countries, which benefits everyone!

    September 22, 2010 at 3:00 pm |

    I would defiantly not eat this! It is technical salmon on steroids nobody would want to eat chemical altered fish.

    September 22, 2010 at 3:25 pm |

    I think salmon should not be modified because it may not be that safe, and that could harm us in many ways.

    September 22, 2010 at 3:28 pm |
  170. Kristen

    To me it's hard to not thini of the healthiness of the fish before eating it. If it isn't healthy I won't eat it. It also depends on the quality of the fish. Is the fish really fatty or does it have the amount of meat that it seems to have on it. Where it comes from is also a huge factor. Does it come from far away and put unnessisary pollution into the air or is it local or almost local.

    September 22, 2010 at 3:41 pm |

    I think the recssion is not over because so many of friends parents and family members are still looking for jobs and havent found anything. And theres so many forclosure signs in my neighborhood.

    September 22, 2010 at 3:51 pm |
  172. courtney

    i would not eat it because for all we know is that the chemical in it could kill us and we do not deserve to die like that its not right.

    September 22, 2010 at 3:53 pm |
  173. Jason

    I wouldnt eat this "modified" salmon because it could contain some bacteria tht can get you sick or can posibly kill you. Another reason is tht, why would you need to :mofify" salmon in the first place? It just doesnt make since to me. In my own opinion, i like salmon just the way it is. It tastes fine and doesnt need to be "modified" with some other fish"s DNA just to make it bigger. That could also probably harm the fish also aso welol as us. That is why i don't like the idea of salmon being "modified", also, just so people no, I am a HUGE salmon lover. That is why i say keep the fish the way it is.

    September 22, 2010 at 4:06 pm |

    This Salmon debate seems to be an issue, but I would not eat ANYTHING unless it has been tested. I think this issue is a big one, as well as the salmon.

    September 22, 2010 at 4:31 pm |
  177. AJ

    I wouldnt never eat it. Cause it was genetically altered. The only meats i eat are home grown.

    September 22, 2010 at 4:34 pm |
  178. Mr. McCarthy's Class

    We would not eat salmon that was genetically created because the chemicals that are used might cause health problems in the future. It might taste good now, but it might cause cancer or some other disease in the future. It also might make people gain more weight which is already a problem in this country.

    September 22, 2010 at 4:39 pm |
  179. Lindsey

    I think that people shouldn't eat the fish because what if it affects humans?

    I'll wait when the goverment says its okay to eat it,
    but iwill keep it because it's cool.

    September 22, 2010 at 4:44 pm |
  181. Joel

    I think that you should not eat genetically engineered salmon if scientists haven't ran tests on them and haven't yet approved them to be eaten.Because if tests have not yet been ran,people might get seriously sick or possibly die from eating them.So I would pefer just stick to regular salmon.

    September 22, 2010 at 4:53 pm |
  182. Cassidy

    I wouldn't eat the genetically modifed salmon. The modified salmon might not be healthy to eat. If tests prove that it is, there is no telling if there will be any effects on the consumer later. If some people are brave enough to eat it, then it is their choice. But still, think about the risks that they would be taking! I think that the best choice would be to eat the normal salmon and know what exactly you are eating.

    September 22, 2010 at 5:03 pm |
  183. Rufus

    I would most certainly stick to the natural fish. Until I'm aware of the risks I would stick with the natural fish.

    September 22, 2010 at 5:04 pm |
  184. Sallie

    Yes, I would eat genetically engineered salmon but only after it has been tested. I don't want to eat food that could be as dangerous as eating raw fish, but if we have bigger salmon, the world would have fewer starving people. If they have a small contained area, with both genetically engineered and natural salmon, we could see if the engineered salmon is able to survive.

    September 22, 2010 at 5:06 pm |

    I think I would try the salmon fish because it can be healthy for some people if you like salmon fish

    September 22, 2010 at 5:16 pm |

    I don't think that it would be safe to eat the salmon because it has been tampered with and if there are health problem associated with it then I would rather not eat it for the risk of getting sick.

    September 22, 2010 at 5:33 pm |
  192. Ashley

    Even if the salmon tasted exactly the same, I would not eat it. We don't know how genetically engineered foods are going to affect us 10, 20, even 30 years from now. It's better to be safe and eat natural salmon instead of risking our health.

    September 22, 2010 at 5:47 pm |
  193. Carly

    I wouldnt eat it that's just plain gross.

    September 22, 2010 at 5:47 pm |

    September 22, 2010 at 5:54 pm |
  195. Kiley

    I'm not a big fan of seafood in general. But just seeing the genetically engineered fish make my stomach turn. It disgusts me that they would even think of putting Salmon DNA into some random fish just to make it bigger. What if that other fish had a disease? If I ever ate it (which I never intend on doing) I could get sick. Just because it's "bigger" doesn't mean it's better.
    So no, I would not eat it. Not on my life.

  199. Ricardonc

    personally i think its disgusting their trying to industrialize nature thats not cool plus it will probably be really not that healthy really the clone salmon would probably die at age 5 (in salmon years)in the wild and its probably disfuncional

    Modified Salmon can be dangerous, hardly enough testing to tell if it is safe to eat..... No way would i eat it until it can be proven safe to eat!

    I'm not a fan of salmon, but I would eat the modified salmon if I actually liked it. I don't see the harm in it if it poses no health risks and helps feed more people.

    I would not eat the fish because we dont know if it is poison or not.

    There is no doubt that I would only stick to the natural kind. The genetically modified one is twice as big in less time and for some reason I find that gross. But that's just me I guess.

    September 22, 2010 at 6:24 pm |
  205. Lindsey

    I would eat gentically engineered salmon if it was the only food avaliable. Yes it would create more food for hungry people, but it can still cause health problems if it hasn't been tested. The salmon people should eat, should come from the water, not a lab table.

    September 22, 2010 at 6:26 pm |
  206. Britni

    I would rather eat the natural salmon because u never know what they put in the salmon they made the salmon they made could have a disease and u can get sick from that. if people want salmon they can go by it not eat the kind that could be bad for you.

    I would consider eating the salmon but I really dont think it would taste as good as regular salmon. Taste is really what is important when it comes to genetically enhancing food.

    September 22, 2010 at 7:05 pm |
  210. Paul

    The salmon would defininetly increase the amount of food that could be purchased but do we have the right to change this animal just so that we can eat more of it? I personally believe that it is the wrong way to go about having more food. I think that scientist should be focusing on making the fish lay more eggs so that there are more fish in the first place.

    September 22, 2010 at 7:08 pm |

    natural anything is better. you should not alter nature unless it is a crisis. you wouldn't want to be altered so you could be fatter.

    honestly, i would not eat the fish. has it even been inspected? it looks like it's full of gases,and all types of different particles. the other salmon looks fresh and something that i COULD eat!

    Even if I am a vegetarian, I would not like to eat something genetically modified, such as normal broccoli turning into some super sized broccoli tree. If we have been eating normal food for thousands of years, why should we decide to eat modified food all of a sudden? I think that these companies should ban the selling and consuming of these modified foods

    i would not eat the salmon. because it looks full of obesety (fatness). also, the fish doesn't even looked inspected from the inside. honestly,the other salmon looks fresh. the made salmon looks full of particles and bacteria. YUCK!!

    I would not eat the genetically engineered fish because I don't think it's safe to eat. Anything that has not been tested alot of times or hasn't been proven to be eatable, is not enough facts for me. Personaly, I think we should stick to the foods or fish that we have always been eating.If we don't, I think we will get sick which will cause another major symptom going on.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with this salmon, but most people probably won't eat it because they had to modify it. Plus, it might taste different than the regular kind of salmon.

    No, I will not eat it. There are confused animal acting caused by genetic modified corns occuring somewhere in Aisa recently which intensified my worries.

    I would not eat the fish, there is always a chance of an unseen health effect from genetically modified foods. Plus, I do wonder, haven't we changed nature enough? I don't think earlier centuries had to make genetically modified fish for extra food.

    September 22, 2010 at 8:08 pm |
  225. Jonathan

    If I were to eat the fish, I would like to see a list of what they put in the fish to make it so much bigger. Plus, making bigger fish could be good, but it could also adversely effect the community of fish and the natural balance.

    September 22, 2010 at 8:11 pm |
  226. Kelsey

    I would definitely eat the genetically engineered salmon if it tasted the same as regular fish and wasn't harmful to my health. It's still salmon, whether it's genetically engineered or not.

    I would not eat the salmon because it sounds vary unhealthy. People have problems with putting growth hormones in other animals. All though there is no growth hormones involved fast growing fish that are made in a lab sound vary unhealthy to me.

    i believe that no one should attempt selling the salmon until it is tested and the FDA announces it is safe. People who have eaten may not have been effected by it YET. We shouldn't do anything with it until it is proven safe so we can keep everyone in good health.

    There is no way to test this its crazy if one thing goea wrong it is going to be a big problem. Who would want to eat a modified fish because its bigger it crazy would never eat it if i knew it was modified.

    I think this new and upcoming salmon genetic alteration exemplifies america's, if not the worlds, faced paced, more efficent need for food products. I see no difference in this than herbicides for plants, or hormones for farm animals. Its all about getting the food quicker and larger to the heavy demand of the many consumers. If we really need to save the environment, well we should do it naturally. Thats why the faster, cheaper, and larger food products always win out over the organic products. Eating organic lifestyle is not only a healthy option and defense for obesity, but a step in the process to clean up our environment. Im not saying this genetically altered fish is a detriment for us consumers, but once again, we are falling victim to a society that produces products cheaper, faster, and bigger in order to keep up with the demand of the worlds population.

    I think eating the salmon is going to be better for the health. Some others though think eating the salmon may be dangerous as do I. I think it hasn't been tested enough to be proven safe.

    I wold never want to eat somthing like that espeacially if there wasnt more testing to see if it is safe to eat and i would definetly want to know what is in the fishbefor i eat it. If more fish genticaly modified it would probably totally mess the ecosystem.

    I would prefer eating the regular salmon because if you eat the ingineered salmon you might get sick. I also prefer the regular salmon because it isn't as fat as the engineered one and it looks cleaner

    I would not eat the genetically engineered salmon because I do not think it has been tested enough. I don't think that it's the correct way to get your food. I also think there would be too many chemicals that would harm your body.

  246. Jack

    Woah! That's a chubby fish! Too chubby for my liking though. It's not diseases I'm worried about, it's the salmon's chubbiness. Enviormentally speaking, that could be bad. If the salmon's too chubby, it would escape from a bear. Obvuisly, the salmon population would decrease in that area so you would probably be left with plain old salmon. That sure is a waste of mony, huh?

  248. Cassandra

    I love fish, but genetically engineered fish?No, I mean, yeah it would mean more food, but you really have to consider what other people would think if they found out that it was genetically engineered. If you sold it without telling people that it was genetically engineered and it was sold at a reasonable price, then most likely, lots of people would buy it, but as soon as they found out that we had changed it purposely, then not as many people would be willing to eat it any more, and the economy that had been improving because of the fish, would suddenly drop.

    I think it is a good idea to fatten them up, but it can probably hurt us as well. We don't know what kind of chemicals are put into these salmon. I would probably have to try both before making a decision.

    I do not think I would eat the salmon, because it may or may not make you sick depending on the chemicals and genetical stuff they put into the fish. I understand that some may want or like to eat it, but not me. That is just not a risk I am willing to take.

    Genetically modified salmon? That's just down right dumb. Look at the size of the fish how much more food would thy need to eat that other fish need to eat. This could destroy their ecosystem!

  257. Mrs. Shenk's Class

    Personally, We think the size doesn't matter, it's the quality, We'd rather eat GOOD small piece of food than eat a big piece of genetically engineered food, Testing is the first step, Can't eat food without testing it, It can kill you if you don't.

    -Maybe! I dont know about eating genetically modified food. I'd have to taste it before actually having it as a meal. What I'd like to know is if its actually good for our health. fish is a healthy food ,but if people start to fatten that too, there will be almost nothing healthy to eat. Thanks Carl for the heads up on the salmon.

    With my health problems in the past, I feel that clean, natural food is the way to go. It would increase health among people if they ate natural, and it would stop one of the theories about how our world would end in 2012.

    I wouldn't eat the fish because I think that you might be able to inherit some of the enhancements that were given to the fish. I think that you should eat the fish how it was born – without being genetically enhanced.

    I would eat the genetically modified salmon. I think that if changing their genes would make them bigger in size it is worth it. I think this could help with food supply and hunger issues.

    I probably wouldn't eat it, although if they make sure the genetics are safe, i'm sure eventually some people would use it for more food. This MIGHT be a revoloution in food development, if they play their cards right.

    Natural! At least until Thorough tests have been done on the fish. But wouldn't that effect the ecosystem? Would the fish even taste better? I don't see how the size of the Salmon is going to benefit society. Just because The fish is bigger, doesn't mean it tastes any better.

    I would never eat tainted salmon! The drugs in it could harm me, and it might not taste that same. I also wouldn't eat it because i know that natural salmon, is healthy, supports more local farmers ( at least it does in my town) and tastes great. Changing nature's genetic formulas is not the right way to making more money.

Also what about the cost? I garuntee you it takes alot of money to put that setain chemical into that salmon to make it bigger. this is my oppion on The Great Salmon Debate.

    i think that the salmon is just fine to eat a dis prob. just as healthy as the ones we have today. there should not be any reason why they arnt as good as wild ones. there both fish and both eat the same food. just one uses the nutriants of it better. they may eat more bu thtey also grow faster. this could help with starvation, fast growing fish means grow them quicker and get them outta the tanks nd have new fish in them.

    I really do not think genetically engineering salmon is a good idea and especially not eating it. They have to put all kinds of chemicals with unknown effects to our bodies in the salmon to genetically engineering. We don't know what these chemicals are going to do to our body in the long run we already have enough chemicals going into our bodies such as pesticides they spray on fruit and veggies. The world really needs to stick to fully organic foods that are not sprayed with chemicals, we would be so much healthier. We don't know what these chemicals are doing to us.

    Genetically modified salmon is wrong it only fills the makers pockets with more money because more is sold and it could taste different and it could have harmful side affects and it would be healtier and it goes against nature and if this was intended to happen it would have happened also it is animal cruelty which is a law and it is unnatural.

    In Germany we eat a lot of fish, but most of the people want to know, that the food is "normal". And I´m a vegetarian, so I wouldn´t eat any fish at all. My English isn´t so good, I hope you don´t mind.

    Gentically Engineering the fish would definitely increase the food supply but it could be unsafe for people to eat. They should work to find a way to make the fish bigger while also making it safe.

    Genitcly engeneering the fish has its pros and cons. Some pros are that the salmon food supply would increase greatly and more people would be to aford it and be able to put food on the table. Some cons are that no one knows if it its safe or not. Also it could cause illness and disease.

    -Putting hormones inside of food is not a very good thing to do. There might be better ways to speed up animal growth. Studies say that by putting hormones in foods and giving it to kids speeds up the start of puberty.Most kids that don't eat foods filled with hormones end up have a long time for puberty to start.

    I don't want to eat food that has any types of harmful chemicals that are in it.If there was data behind this that tells how it effects peoples health. Iwouldn't mind it but, i wouldn't eat it as a meal. Trying it may not be a promblem, but i wouldn't buy it to cook.

    I believe this is a great idea. All over the world people are suffering from starvation and this could be an easy solution. If the genetically enhanced fish show no signs of harm to our digestive system, why not eat it? I personally don't believe it tastes that differently. People who know they are eating the genetically altered fish and have a negative attitude about it are going to think it tastes different because, mentally, they believe it will. Do blind taste tests, I bet the people who were once opposed cannot tell the difference.

    No Thanks! I don't want to take the risk of eating salmon that could be unsafe. I think that if they want to keep the salmon rate high, they should just limit the amount of salmon people can fish.

    I think if you try to change animal’s genetics or other wise that that would make the fish more endangered. We don't even know if it could be a dangerous health issue or not. If you think about it if it's making the fish bigger then it could make us humans better.

    I usually dont eat fish but i think it is interesting that they are changing fish to somthing that they are not. I think that they should just leave the fish how they were. if they do change the genetics then it could effect wild life that eat the fish like bears, eagles. ect. If they leave the fish alone then there wont be problems at all.

    i would eat the normal fish not only because it is more trust worthy then the mutated one but it wouldn't bother the ecosystem that much. If they started to mutate the fish, they would start to eat more then the normal sized ones and that would bother the ecosystem a lot.

    There are a lot of the other foods that are consumed these days that are genetically modified, so I suppose I would try it. I'm sure the natural salmon would be better than the genetically modified salmon though. The genetically modified salmon is supposed to be healthier, so maybe it would be good both taste wise, and health wise.

    I don't think it was very smart of them to do that. I would hope that they tested it before they let people eat it. Someone could get very sick. My question is how did they even do it make a salmon. I think it is the wrong way to try and get more food.It might not even taste good.

    These salmon may be bigger but how are they different. The fact that we have increased the size of the salmon may mean we have increased the size of ourselves. Are they really safe to eat or has the fish become more fatty? Greasy? Personally i would eat the fish because all we have done is changed the structure to increase the size and even though it may be safe, is it healthy?

    Genetically altered salmon isn't salmon at all. I have recently watched the documentary "Food Inc." and am astounded by how much food is already genetically inhansed. Just because it's bigger, doesn't mean it's better. These food companies only want to increase their income, not their amount of quality food. I say eat normal slamon or none at all.

    I think that the samon debate is smart because it takes a long time to have samon grow big and it wont grow big as fast as we eat it. the genetic part will also take time to find out how thier going to do it but the major thing is if it is safe to eat.

    My opinion on the salmon debate is, i don't think that i would eat the genetic altered salmon due to the fact that genetics vary in many different ways. So when messing with the fishes genetics it could vary the way they taste and how good it could be for you.

    I think that that is just nasty and I personally wouldn't eat something that isn't natural.also with this healthy kids act I don't think this is solving anything.

    i would not eat the fish that is on steroids because to me it looks like something is wrong with it,and what if it has something that is like a disease and you catch it.

    this is all stupid i would eat it if its just as healthy like you said and if it tastes the same cause its not like the servings are bigger its just more fish for less money

    If this is what we have come to in order for us to be able to invest more into the fish market then, i believe it's wrong. Increasing the size of the Salmon genetically will change the natural taste of it and then it won't be the same as it should be.

    The Bigger the fish the more the fat and the more the fat the more that the Salmon is unhealthy, I say stick with the regular

    i would rather stick with the regular salmon than rather the genetically engineered salmon because cloning the salmon would be bad for our enviromental consedering what it is like now.

    I would never eat genetically altered salmon because it might have a disease because it is changed to be so big. It might also taste different because of how large they get. Although this might make an increase in food amounts it wouldn't really effect the U.S. because we already have a stable food supply and we would be having more of the fish,but we would also be killing more of them.

    September 23, 2010 at 5:36 pm |
  432. Nicole

    The Genetically Engineered fish would be like eating fake fruit from a tables centerpiece. I would go with the natural salmon which is guarenteed to look and taste like real salmon.

    September 23, 2010 at 5:37 pm |
  433. Noelle

    I agree with paul. if we increase the amount of salmon we would have more food for us AND more food for the animals in that environment. Which means Alot more animals for us to eat and it would help us get out of the recession. Every one would be happy if we went with pauls suggestion

    September 23, 2010 at 5:37 pm |
  434. Hope

    I don't think eating thins would taste good but it will be more likely to harm the fish and might bring the number of fish (or just salmon) would decrease.

    September 23, 2010 at 5:59 pm |
  435. Vinny

    I would definetly not eat that genetically modified salmon. Even though some people think bigger is better, I do not. They should just keep it how it is. I bet that the regular will be better to most people because they are used to it. They are not used to that silly copy salmon. It would be like having a genetically modified mother, father, or pet.

    I would never eat any kind if specially modified fish! You could eat it and it could endanger your life. Plus, I want to hear a scientist's okay first. Also who said if you ate it the stuff they put in the fish to make it bigger, wouldn't make you bigger. It could endandger your health and your life.

  438. Demetrius

    I don't even eat salmon but even though I still wont even eat it because my thoughts are that even if I eat a salmon I still think that I will get sick so my thoughts is to tell everyone not to eat it!

    September 23, 2010 at 6:18 pm |
  439. Mollie

    This salmoln could cause danger to the food chain. If the salmon's hunger increases, then it might eat more, then other fish that eat the same things would not get much to eat. Plus,with not too many left, the fish the salmon eat would not have to eat so many of what they eat, so then the fish that the " salmon food" eat would increase dramaticly, which could harm the food cycle.

    September 23, 2010 at 6:20 pm |

    Carl, Modified fish is like eating normal fish people are trying to help us with this economy this could be a new step toward the future! So yes i would eat the salmon whats the worst that could happen?

    September 23, 2010 at 6:55 pm |
  445. Elsa

    I wouldn't eat genetically engineered salmon because it's just not natural. Its not right to eat food that has been modified because it's not healthy and if we keep genetically modifying our food, REAL food won't exist. We have to keep with organic and natural food items. It's not healthy for us or the salmon. It's just not natural!

    September 23, 2010 at 6:55 pm |
  446. Elizabeth

    I, personally, would not eat genetically modified salmon. The sound of it makes me cringe. It does not matter how healthy or unhealthy it may be, I just could never eat that.

  447. juli

    If you are going to eat salmon, why would you eat it. Well it is much bigger and not artificle. You say it is good but we might get sick.

    September 23, 2010 at 7:05 pm |
  448. Mercedes

    I dont like fish but if i did i would try it. Thats like choosing between a little lollipop with dirt on it or the huge lollipop with dirt on it. They are the same fish and most of them carry all the same things even tho they have been genetically change. If people are that scared get their fish tested.

    Personally, I only trust what the FDA approves. And when CNN showed the genetic fish compared to the normal one, it seemed kind of suspicious and fishy.

    September 23, 2010 at 8:41 pm |
  456. Cecelia

    I would probably not want to eat the genetically modified fish, even thought it may taste the same. Changing the genetic structure of an animal might have some negative effect on your health. You never know what they put in the fish to make them grow faster that might have some toll on your own health.

    September 23, 2010 at 8:42 pm |
  457. Joe

    If the genetically engineered salmon pass all FDA tests and it gives Americans more jobs then we shouldn't need to "fish" for an answer.

    I think genetically enginered salmon is sort of silly. Whats wrong with ordinary salmon? But, maybe I would try it if the FDA approved... If not then it's probably not safe to eat.

    September 23, 2010 at 8:54 pm |
  460. Dylan

    Personally I hate all seafood! However even if I did enjoy salmon I wouldn't eat it if it was genetically modified. Who cares if it's bigger than a normal salmon? Cant GMF (Genetically modified foods) cause cancer and obesity? Plus bigger is not ALWAYS better.

    September 23, 2010 at 9:02 pm |
  461. AJ

    I believe that this is not natural or humane. Considering what we are doing we are changing nature's way and modifying animals. I don't think this is a proper approach.

  462. Madeleine

    The sound of genetically engineered Salmon just does not sound like it tastes good and I don't think that sounds healthy. Wheather its healthy or not Im not eating it, also Im going to agree with Elsa, if we keep genetically modifying or food we won't have real food to consume.

    September 23, 2010 at 9:06 pm |
  463. Rebeca

    I would never eat food that is not real, especially if they don't know if it is good for you and your body... Don't u realize that is not healthy for you!

  465. Meagan

    I wouldn't eat the salmon, because you don't know what chemicals was used to genetically engineer the fish. I also wouldn't eat because the chemicals could have a disease that affects humans and not fish or in this case salmon.

    September 23, 2010 at 10:05 pm |
  466. Drew

    NO; I would not eat modified salmon because it might have poison in it or it could have a sickness and it could kill you. OK! So don't eat modified salmon

  468. Nicolas

    i don't care because salmon is fish and so is genetically modified salmon. Both are fish so whats the difference. One fish is bigger than the other so that's even better.

    September 23, 2010 at 10:25 pm |
  469. Bryan

    Eating genetically made salmon doesn't sound very safe to eat.Eating anything that has been genetically modified could possibly cause the spread of dieases and it doesn't matter if it's twice the size if it isn't safe to eat.

    September 23, 2010 at 10:27 pm |
  470. Kari

    I would not eat this salmon. Sure it is much bigger, but we do not know what else they might do to it before they sell it. I would not eat the salmon if someone tried to pay me one hundred dollars.

    September 23, 2010 at 11:48 pm |
  471. Austin

    I don’t think there is a difference in taste between genetically engineered fish and natural fish. I believe that its all a psychological thing, people have it in their minds that it is different, but its not.

  472. Katie

    Lets say that you went to a restaurant and you didnt know that they served genetically modified salmon , it was well prepared and seasoned just like any ordinary salmon would have been prepared, would you have been able to tell the difference? in my opinion if it tastes the same or 10 times better than ENJOY IT !!

  481. Fiala

    I think that this might be good to help bring jobs back. It still doesn't seem good and I really don't know if I would like to eat that stuff without the O.K. from specialists. It sounds so bad and I don't think this will be good for the fish it's self. It will also be bad because again it will bring more jobs back to the fishing industry and make more boats go out onto the water and the boat will cause more polution and the polution could affect us. So really by trying to help ourselves we are really creating a bigger problem that's going to come back to slap us in the face.

    I think that making the salmon ALOT bigger makes it look more fat and disgusting. Why would someone want to eat that? It is very puffy, and just think to yourself that the salmon is soo big, would it make you big too?

    Why would anyone in there lives would want to eat genetically salmon? Salmon is salmon..but if someone is going to eat this kind of salmon...i would most definatly would be grossed out because what if there are chemicals and something nasty in there?

    Why would you have a debate over fish. I think if it taste good, heathy for you and dont get sick. I would eat it. It the same type just a diffrent size don't spend money on the stuff you know is good, if peolpe taste it and say it's good. Then just get one that isn't alot of money.

    everybody is saying it will make you sick and well, in ag we learned that genetically modified cows and swine gets better genes, because the owner gets to pick what genes goes in. DNA won't make you sick.
    it it did, we would all be sick because every living thing has it: vegetables, flowers, meat, and fruit. the meat of salmon might even taste better if it has been genetically modified.

    At the first thought of eating genetically modified salmon, it's sounds gross, unhealthy and unsafe. But much of the food we eat today is not natural, nearly everything we eat has been genetically modified or specifically bred for certain qualities. Why worry about what we eat now?

    I think that we should not do this to our food. We have eat this. if we get piossened because of this blowen up fish.People keep saying that america is the fattset country.

  509. Zuhayr

    I personally would not care if my food has been genetically modified as long as it tastes the same. If the fish is genetically modified and tastes the same, then we could help stop world hunger. A bad sideaffect to this is that the fish might need more intake in order to grow so big.

    I think eating artificial salmon doesn't even sound right. If I was even going to eat salmon I'd eat he original. If you did eat the modified salmon you'd probably get sick and/or go crazy

    I bet they put steroids in that Salmon. No salmon can go that big with its ecosystem how it is. Also its probably nasty and will mess up your organs and make you mentall ill.

    Salmon is good for you, no matter if its genetically engineered or natural. I like salmon!

    September 24, 2010 at 3:19 pm |
  532. zakarian

    ii would eat the natural salmon vs. genetically enginered fish due to the fact that the natural salmon is less likely to have as many problems as a genetically enginered fish would

    Eating modified salmon would just be disgusting and not natural. Modifying food is like trying to play God and thats not what we're supposed to be doing. We have no idea what the effects would be on us in the long run so it's pointless to even do it. So no, I would never eat it.

    September 24, 2010 at 3:20 pm |
  534. Xai

    Genetic modified fish would ruin the natural taste of an original delicacy. I believe natural fish would be preferable than genetic modified fish. Unlike Jose who wants to eat genetic modified fish.

    the usage of cloning in america would rate bad in our enviroment therefore producing geneticaly inclined engeneerd would be a waist in our communitys background in issues some people cant relate to so ill stck with the producd living fish(salmon)than rather put trhe world around waist to benefit

    Your speaking of salmon that has only been genetically altered to increase in size and nutritional value. Assuming that this "new" salmon will taste the same as always, there is little reason not to eat. Getting sick is a possibility, but a day or two under the weather is no reason to ignore a health issue that shows a significant progression and advancement in how the foods we eat will be changed through the course of time. If you are truly concerned about the effects of eating genetically altered salmon than let others try it before you and figure out if any negative consequences have ailed them. I'm not going to argue with those people who insist that it's not right to eat natural food however. That's a moral issue and I have no standing point on it.

    I would eat genetically engineered salmon unless it posed a risk to my health.

    The whole point of genetically modified food is to make things healthier for us. not make us sick.

    The salmon might be very dangerous to eat, you wouldn't want to be harmed by it if you eat it, i know i wouldn't.

    September 24, 2010 at 5:13 pm |
  541. Maclean

    First of all, genetic salmon would cause job loss with fisherman and secondly genetic anything is going to damage to your own DNA so...no I would not eat that salmon

    September 24, 2010 at 5:37 pm |
  542. Victoria

    I, would eat genetically modified salmon. If it's not going to hurt you why not eat?

    September 24, 2010 at 6:08 pm |
  543. Nectaria

    Yes I would eat bigger salmon beacuse I like it and hopefully it will be tastier and healthier

    September 24, 2010 at 6:42 pm |
  544. Brian

    I would eat the genitically engineered fish. The modified fish could taste like somthing humans have never expirenced before. This could be a revolutionary step into enhancing the taste of our food.

    September 24, 2010 at 6:53 pm |
  545. Katie

    I would never eat genetically changed salmon. It might be bad for your health

    September 24, 2010 at 7:40 pm |
  546. Angie :D

    One question – WHY? In my opinion, this is downright wrong. Why are they messing with nature? Modifying fish? Really? I would never even touch a modified salmon, and espescially won't eat it! This might seriously hurt the enviorment, as if we haven't hurt it enough with the oil spill, and global warming, and all that jazz. Modified Salmon is not natural, and could possibly be dangerous. I don't feel like taking riskes and getting sick. This is bad...really bad.

    September 24, 2010 at 8:13 pm |
  547. Marisa

    If it is safe then i will eat. But they have to test it more.

    September 24, 2010 at 8:26 pm |
  548. Regan

    Personally i am not a big fan of fish but over hearing this story would make it said if sombody really would eat these druged up fish... if us humans cant use medicane to make us huge why can they?

    September 24, 2010 at 9:04 pm |
  549. Hannah

    I want to stick to the regular salmon. Modified salmon is unnatural, and people should really stop messing with the world around us to make "better" or "more efficient" products. Nature was put here for a reason.

    September 24, 2010 at 9:11 pm |

    it might be contaminated so i wouldent eat it it may be bigger but is it healty for you and will it get you sick

    I think it might be fine at first but think about all the sidafects.

    Why would you eat salmon that has chemicals of some sort in it when you can have a regular salmon healthy as can be rather than the robotic salmon.

  553. Kenzie

    Many things in this society is man-made, but why would we want to put something that was originally on this earth and engineer it in a way that will not only taste slightly different; but, might be unhealthy for us. If we keep engineering food, eventually it could cause many problems to us, and in the long run not actually be the natural food that is was supposed to be.

    September 24, 2010 at 10:23 pm |
  554. Justin

    I think it would be nasty to eat genetically modified salmon.

    It could be good, but I would eat regular salmon because of all the fish oils to have a good supplement of omega 3.

    I would eat it because it could help you but I'm not sure.

    September 25, 2010 at 8:37 am |

    yes because that them salmon is a lot bigger and it will make you be much fuller.

    September 25, 2010 at 10:17 am |
  559. Emma

    No, I would not eat the salmon because it is not natural for salmon to grow that big. If it could get that big it would. Scientists don't need to go around making everything bigger and better. It's like eating genetically engineered beef, it's not natural.

    September 25, 2010 at 11:50 am |

    No way I would eat this new modified fish even if you would pay me a million dollars! It looks very unhealthy and it seems very harmful to the salmon population. Yuck its sounds very disturbing!!!! Just the size and mass of the modified fish just seems unnatural and I really don't like eating things look unnatural!!!!

    September 25, 2010 at 2:53 pm |
  562. Marc

    Of course I would. I'd rather trust Man with his technology than Mother Nature's tendency to mess things up. I would still eat natural salmon though.

    If you were to eat that salmon you will end up in the hospital. That fish was gross. just buy a normal fish it is better

  571. Olivia

    I say I would only eat natural salmon, we have already been provided with enough nutrients from the salmon. Adding more nutrients ( that are man made) just isn't the solution. America isn't suffering from starvation or anything, neither to the point where we have to modify our foods.

    September 25, 2010 at 8:07 pm |
  572. Heather

    Go natural. eating natural is always healthier. Most things genetically altered will sooner or later end up beign recalled or discontinued. just stay away from it!

  573. Devon

    i would not eat the fish, beacause it might have harmfull bacteria in it, and it just dosnt seem healthy eating what ever they put in the samon, because what ever goes in them goes in to us

    I personally would not eat genetically modified salmon. Altough it may be bigger and may taste the same does not mean that it is heathly.

    I honestly woldnt eat it becase who knows what they put i the salmon and why they did it.Was it for an experi ment will it spredad to the other fish what is going to happen to the economy.

    September 26, 2010 at 12:48 am |
  577. Judy

    I think if it gets through with more testing and proves to be no harm to the original salmon "life cycle", I would eat it. I mean, if it's safe, there's no reason to not eat it. It's bigger, so probably cheaper. Economicly and enviromently friendly!

    September 26, 2010 at 7:17 am |
  578. Judy

    Why does most people hate the idea of modified salmon? As I said before, if it's safe, there's no point NOT eating it. Some people said that they don't like it because they feel like someone messed with it, then what about pizzas and hamburgers? Somebody already touched it.

    September 26, 2010 at 7:22 am |

    I would say that the natural salmon is a lot better in taste becuse there are no chemicals in it.The natural salmon is more safe.If we change food we're going to end up having every food on Earth genetically engineered.

    I'd take the larger one because it would feed more people than the smaller fish. It would also be more fun to catch.

  592. sharayray

    I think i would actually eat it because it may have looked bigger but does it really mean anything. i mean so what if the fish looks bigger, we trust scientists with alot of other things why do we have to make such a big deal about this one

    September 26, 2010 at 9:10 pm |
  593. Angie

    I get what you are saying, Judy, but it's not the fact that they touched it, I think what is upsetting people is the fact that they are messing with sometime natural, changing it's DNA for human benefits, and making it for efficient for us, but not so efficient and all that friendly to the salmon. It's like a model company modifying a baby's face, messing with it's DNA, making it look pretty, when the baby is already beautiful.

    September 26, 2010 at 10:59 pm |
  594. Eyre

    I wouldn't eat it sorry to say since i hate fish but i think many would if it can help us stop world hunger or allow us to make more healthly food. Even though it is geneticly altered, the salmon could survie better maybe than the normal salmon. I don't know about that but if we keep losing forests, fresh water lakes than in the future we may have to turn to geneticly altered food that can survie.

    I think cyber bullying is the worst. You can't really fight back against the people who send you those demeaning comments. It's much easier to ignore people who verbally bully you and show them that you don't care about what they think of you. And if you're physically you can dish it right back to them.
    Personally, if I ever got bullied, I would want it to be physical, that way I could beat up the person who beat me up.

    Tempering with Salmon causes the salmon to be raised in a UN-healthy and UN-natural environment. A healthy and natural environment results in a healthy fish. Although I'm a vegetarian an would not eat it anyway.

  610. Sophia

    I would eat the genetically altered salmon. I mean really, all the beef and chicken and pork you eat, most likely has growth hormones in it so what's the big deal. If you knew what went into those Swiss Rolls, Swedish fish, and chicken nuggets you're eating...some mutated salmon would sound pretty darn good! 🙂

    September 27, 2010 at 7:20 pm |
  611. Josie

    I probably would not eat it.
    even if it was safe, I still think it is not only wrong to eat it,

    No not untile alot of tests are done and they are studied. Though I would proboble eat it if we bought it. Not to mention it is crull to the fish what they are doing. I think that place where they are changing fish D.N.A structure is just plain sick!

    Genetically-altered salmon seems like merely a test subject to strike world hunger where it hurts. I like salmon, and with this new type, there may not be any need to take second helpings.

    I would rather have on that is just natural, because first of all if we created our own salmon the environmental population of salmon would go up. Again, who knows what they put into the salmon!

    I wouldn't eat this fish for many reasons. 1. If released it would have a harmful effect on the eco-system by killing the other salmon due to less competition. 2. It could also be a carrier of more diseases. 3. Finally, eating it may have a effect on our health do to it's DNA.

    I think this is very wrong. First we will start with fish, then we will experiment with mammals, then chimps and finally humans, possibly against our will. I am strongly against this. Genetically enhancing anything living is wrong.

    I would eat it if they didn't tell me it was modified! but eating a modified animal, in my opinion is like eating an animal with poison as a side dish

    September 28, 2010 at 4:48 pm |
  642. jakob

    i just think its disgusting and wrong to eat anything artificial

    September 28, 2010 at 5:38 pm |
  643. andrew

    i don't really care how my salmon is grown, it all tastes the same to me; but other people might think it is absolutely disgusting.

    September 28, 2010 at 5:39 pm |
  644. colton

    dont eat the fish because it has to have a health risk it might not shown signs of it now but i might in the future God made them that way and thats the way it needs to stay ther is always an effect to the cause and it can be dangerous or helpful we may never know

    September 28, 2010 at 6:10 pm |
  645. Brittany

    I think that the genetically engineered salmon is very dangerous. People might think it's okay now but, do we know the long-term affects? I think that the scientist should think, would they eat it?

    September 28, 2010 at 6:11 pm |
  646. Drew

    No. I will not eat modified anything. Not just because its gross, but because its morally wrong.

    September 28, 2010 at 6:42 pm |
  647. nick

    i would consider this food but what about the chemicals in the fish ? and what about the other fish would they just die out ?

    September 28, 2010 at 6:43 pm |
  648. Owen

    I don't think the risk to my health would be worth it no matter how good it tastes or how big it is

    September 28, 2010 at 6:51 pm |
  649. Claudia

    Gosh, who cares? Like in the book- FISH IS FISH!!

    September 28, 2010 at 6:54 pm |
  650. jessabella

    I don't realy like sea food but open to trying it.Any kind of food that i eat was ever genetically modified as well as the salmon i still wouldn't eat it.Years later scientist could figure out that it trigers cancer,or lung diseaces it could start a global depression a little far fech but true.I'm not going to be over pro tective about me or anyone else eating genetically modified fish.Just that som e more testing should be don e so no one gets hurt.This could even be a globaly exsepted thing.Who knows?

    September 28, 2010 at 7:01 pm |
  651. Akire

    No, because if you wouder what did it eat to get bigger.Mabe they eat the gobies that came up the mississippi river?

    September 28, 2010 at 7:04 pm |
  652. Jordan

    No salmon for me hate it. Besides i don't think it will salmon (sell mon)! I know there is just somthing FISHY about it. Sorry, I am just FISHING for puns today.I'm Carl Azuz for CNN Student news... Oh wait that's your line.

    September 28, 2010 at 7:07 pm |
  653. Nathan

    I wouldnt eat any fish that has been geneticaly engineered because i dont think it is good for people because they use things that probly shouldnt be eaten in the fish and chage its dna and i dont think it would be somthing I would want to even put any were near my mouth.

    September 28, 2010 at 7:17 pm |
  654. Paulina

    I think that the modified salmon could be dangrous and could afect our helth also we should do more testing

    September 28, 2010 at 7:53 pm |
  655. Abraham

    i'm fine with eating normal salmon, but I don't think it's right to eat it when it's modified. If they breed that way in nature without scientists, I'd eat it.

    September 28, 2010 at 7:53 pm |
  656. Paulina

    anything modified is bad no dought about it

    September 28, 2010 at 7:55 pm |
  657. caleb

    i wouldnt eat it, but considering all of the things we eat already, this doesnt seem so bad.

    September 28, 2010 at 8:31 pm |
  658. Sarah

    i would not eat that salmon. animals wernt put on this planet to be genetically modified. even if the salmon's bigger, it could harm the oceans ecosystem and harm our bodies.

    September 28, 2010 at 9:01 pm |
  659. Ashwin

    Genectically altered salmon has DNA catalysts that make it grow. I don't like fish, but it isnt good for the body because the fish can have chemicals that can have disastrous results, especially on kids.

    September 28, 2010 at 10:31 pm |
  660. Tony

    If they give me that salmon when I am on a cage without food and water, I would eat it.

    September 28, 2010 at 10:40 pm |
  661. Diego

    I wouldnt eat it it can have all these types of disease and that can harm you and i would think it would be wierd eating a salmon that big

    September 28, 2010 at 11:05 pm |
  662. Rachel

    Modified Salmon? Whats next a modified child? This is going way to far. we cant keep using technology in this way or else someday, an experiment will definitely go wrong.

    September 29, 2010 at 6:29 am |
  663. Jacob

    do not think I would eat it unless I had to. It's just like geneticly ruining a fish, even though there getting bigger.

    September 29, 2010 at 9:56 am |
  664. Eliza

    I don't think it would taste the same

    September 29, 2010 at 10:13 am |
  665. Sarah

    I would never in my life eat eating genetically engineered fish. Plus i do not eat fish i would not eat that one.

    September 29, 2010 at 10:22 am |
  666. Jina

    I would NEVER eat it cause that stuff is WACK!!

    September 29, 2010 at 11:28 am |
  667. riley

    the salmon thing doesnt really bother me i will eat it as long as i know it wont hurt kill or make me sick in any way. but if i know that it willdo any of those things i will not even as so much touch it, let alone eat it.

    September 29, 2010 at 1:53 pm |
  668. nick

    i wount eat the samon because you dont no what is in them

    September 29, 2010 at 2:03 pm |
  669. aaron

    i would eat it its just it would have to be COOKed

    September 29, 2010 at 2:06 pm |
  670. gavinw

    I think that this is a great idea because if it is healthy and safe I would love to have it personly and it is alot bigger and I could almost eat all of it.

    September 29, 2010 at 2:43 pm |
  671. alex

    i wouldn't eat the fish at all , the pumped chemicals in it so i think they should take a few months to a year to even think about putting it on the market :]

    September 29, 2010 at 5:01 pm |
  672. bri

    nope

    September 29, 2010 at 5:19 pm |
  673. Ray

    I think most people won't eat the salmon because the salmon is genetic,i can understand if its organic but other than that i won't eat that salmon.

    September 29, 2010 at 5:34 pm |
  674. Abigail

    I would definitly eat as long as I wasnt a vegitarian and as long as i know what is in.

    September 29, 2010 at 5:35 pm |
  675. Haley

    i think that genetically modified salmon is just the same as regualr salmon. We have some people who even go as far as to geneticlly modify their children and they are perfectly normal.

    September 29, 2010 at 6:23 pm |
  676. Sumana

    It is better not to eat salmon. I heard it's very slimy and icky and yucky. I just don't wanna eat it. Yuck!

    September 29, 2010 at 6:39 pm |
  677. Herra

    Well i would not. You never know what that fish has wrong with it, but on the other hand salmon is salmon.

    September 29, 2010 at 7:10 pm |
  678. Daniel

    I think genetically modified salmon is bad. salmon is somthing heathy that alot of people like so why make it unhealthy. do companys want to get us sick or fat its dumb that people want to do that. if this keeps on going maybe every food you find in the market will be genetically modified. If this happens everyone will be fat and unhealthy. i dont think they shoud make genetically modified salmon

    September 29, 2010 at 7:50 pm |
  679. Olivia

    I would never eat genetically modified salmon. They changed it and salmon was perfectly fine before. No need to add anything to it! Its almost like giving salmon steroids. Gross!

    September 29, 2010 at 9:32 pm |
  680. Kyndall

    If this stuff is edible im taking some chances!

    September 29, 2010 at 9:45 pm |
  681. angelica

    I think we should stop messing with the nature, and just leave it be. If we do this, the world will be a much better place, and we would have bigger and healthier animals anyways.

    I don't really like fish, so i wouldn't eat it anyways.

    September 30, 2010 at 11:49 am |
  682. ashley

    i dont like fish that much anyway but i think it is wrong because they are only doing this to get more money for the fish............

    September 30, 2010 at 11:53 am |
  683. jenna

    pump up da fish!!!!!

    September 30, 2010 at 12:06 pm |
  684. Eri-Ray

    I WILL NOT eat a genetically modified salmon. I mean, seriously. For all I know, it could give you smallpox or worse. There's really no debate.

    September 30, 2010 at 4:16 pm |
  685. Dillon

    I don't see whats wrong with it. All foods have chemicals in them to clean then or make them taste better, so there is not much of a difference!

    September 30, 2010 at 6:22 pm |
  686. Andy

    I think that people should let nature be nature and not mutate anymore salmon

    September 30, 2010 at 7:12 pm |
  687. Mavrick

    I would eat it because it is just like normal salmon and if it was on my plate i would not know the difference.

    September 30, 2010 at 8:48 pm |
  688. zachery

    i don't care as long as its eatable,ill eat it.

    September 30, 2010 at 10:10 pm |
  689. Niyonika

    I would not eat because it might make you sick. Unless it was scientificly tested.

    October 1, 2010 at 1:26 am |
  690. max

    well i would just stick with the natural kind becuase changing it up could taste alot different a maybe people wont buy it anymmore if they change the taste

    October 1, 2010 at 1:11 pm |
  691. Edward

    Genetically altered salmon sounds scary. I'm sorry but fresh, unaltered salmon won't do anything to you. Altered salmon may end up making me some mutant and I would be the first X-Man!!

    October 1, 2010 at 2:30 pm |
  692. Erica

    It's salmon. Just bigger. Get over it.

    October 1, 2010 at 2:33 pm |
  693. Bradley

    I don't believe that unless there's any scientific evidence that you can get sick from genetically engineered animals. I respect that some people just may not be comfortable eating it, but to me that's no different then saying you just don't like the taste of salmon. I personally would have no problem eating it.

    October 1, 2010 at 5:18 pm |
  694. kierra

    i would not eat the fish even thought i don't like fish i would never modified fish. What is wrong with the plain fish. If you want bigger fish then just eat more of the regular fish!!!:)

    October 1, 2010 at 5:20 pm |
  695. lauren

    I think they should just quit modifying the salmon because they could spend there time collecting more salmon then modifying fish that some people wont eat.

    October 1, 2010 at 5:33 pm |
  696. Dillon

    I would eat it if the FDA approved of it

    October 1, 2010 at 7:13 pm |
  697. andrew

    this is just a fish that has been made bigger i would eat it ! most people think that it has side-effects(come on if your life depended on it you would probably eat it) i think that these are the people that dont want to change.

    October 1, 2010 at 7:54 pm |
  698. Haley

    It wouldn't surprise me if the salmon got loose and then we'd all be eating it...If that happen I am not sure I would ever touch salmon again.

    October 1, 2010 at 8:24 pm |
  699. John

    I wont eat it till the F.D.A. approves of it

    October 1, 2010 at 10:12 pm |
  700. Snigdha

    I wouldn't eat a "fish' that got changed and made bigger if i were you,
    they may have bad stuff in them.You nver know!!

    October 1, 2010 at 11:31 pm |
  701. richard

    i would not eat it because it can cause worms if you dont cook it right

    October 2, 2010 at 12:06 am |
  702. Megan

    ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww i would not eat it has anybody really ate it yet is it safe or not

    October 2, 2010 at 12:26 pm |
  703. alyssa

    i think basic salmon without any processing would be better then the processed salmon, because the chemicals you add to make it larger could harm the human body if chemicals are added wrongly!!!!!

    October 2, 2010 at 3:16 pm |
  704. alyssa

    i think basic salmon without any processing would be better then the processed salmon, because the chemicals you add to make it larger could harm the human body if chemicals are added wrongly!!!!!!!!! The processed salmon is fine too just i would prefer then none processed salmon!

    October 2, 2010 at 3:17 pm |
  705. shelly

    I think genetic salmon is fine as long as there has been enough testing on it and people knot it is safe to eat and then there is nothing wrong with it in my opinion!!!

    October 2, 2010 at 3:18 pm |
  706. Hope

    Yes I might eat it if I have to but if I had to chose I would say no! It needs more test plus there might be a chance the fish, or salmon, population might decrease, right?

    October 2, 2010 at 4:35 pm |
  707. Kailey

    I wouldnt eat the modified salmon; we need to search what lond term effects it could take before allowing it to be sold for our consumption

    October 3, 2010 at 5:17 am |
  708. Alanna

    Fish is fish. It tastes the same, and it's edible. As long as I don't get sick, I don't really care.

    October 4, 2010 at 10:12 am |
  709. Fiona

    All I have to say is ICKKKKKKKKK, ICK, ICK, ICK, ICK, ICK, NOOOOOO way am I eating a geneticly advnced fish (or what ever you call it). NOOOOO WAY!!!!!!!!!!

    October 4, 2010 at 6:43 pm |
  710. Jesus

    I would not eat the fish because that it might not be safe to eat and that it has to be proven safe to eat

    October 4, 2010 at 6:58 pm |
  711. Gabby

    eating modified slamon is wrong. It ruins the natural order of things. Modified salmon can make you sick, and is not good for any reason. I would never recomend eating modified food. I don't think we should change things just for us.

    October 4, 2010 at 8:54 pm |
  712. ROBERT

    The salmon could be poisonis and could have something that could spread so dont eat it

    October 5, 2010 at 12:58 pm |
  713. Seth

    anything that is geneticaly altered is never going to be as tasty as something that god created

    October 5, 2010 at 2:34 pm |
  714. Erin

    I would rather eat the natural kind of salmom, yeah its fish were eating and we wouldnt like fish to eat us but the genetic enganered kind of fish can be bad for you and can make you relly sick!

    October 5, 2010 at 3:36 pm |
  715. sam

    it is good to make the fish bigger but i would not eat it because who knows if is could kill us?

    October 5, 2010 at 3:48 pm |
  716. sam

    it is good to make the fish bigger but i would not eat it because who knows if it could kill us?

    October 5, 2010 at 3:49 pm |
  717. brody

    I would eat it buecause most of the food today is genetically prosested like can corn

    October 5, 2010 at 4:04 pm |
  718. William

    I personaly think that it would be a great idea because with the oil spills fish are declining and with the effects of the resession still so strong it would help the fishing market provided there is a steady supply of food for the fish

    October 5, 2010 at 5:47 pm |
  719. Morgan

    No way! It hasn't been enough, and frankly, the thought is just gross. 😦

    October 5, 2010 at 6:13 pm |
  720. Paolo

    I think experimenting with Salmon wont help with this problem....where are they gonna put them in the sea? theyll cONTAMInate the whole OCEAN reprodUCING MORE AND MORE MUTATED FISH!!!!

    October 5, 2010 at 6:21 pm |
  721. sebastian

    i wont eat it because it man made what kind of fish is man made it might be harmful

    October 5, 2010 at 6:37 pm |
  722. Herra

    i don't think scientist should mess up the circle of life. The more natural fish is caught in the United States the more it costs then our economy will get better and schools will have more money. You shouldn't mess with mother nature or else mother nature will get you back.

    October 5, 2010 at 7:24 pm |
  723. Parker

    Fixing food? Would that be just as bad as processing it which this nation needs to get away from? I don't want to eat something that has been processed. All the processed food they make today is more than enough. It is like they are trying to get us fat. I think it is a bad idea and would make people sick. Let's just eat fish how God made it, but cooked.

    October 5, 2010 at 10:20 pm |
  724. David

    It might not be that bad because it could end world hunger.

    October 6, 2010 at 12:37 am |
  725. Ciara

    I would rather eat the normal salmon because the thing that they put in the genetically engineered salmon could possibly be toxic and no one knows yet

    October 6, 2010 at 12:40 am |
  726. Cesar

    Never in my life am i eating one of those things, the normal fish are the way to go. you dont have to worry about getting sick!!

    October 6, 2010 at 1:45 pm |
  727. Sam

    It's food, and is meant to be eaten. All that matters is that it will be an actual source of nutrition, and not bring on any unknown side effects. And plus, the more salmon the better! GM salmon could survive better than a regular salmon, and increase the probability that the salmon population won't decrease drastically, and leave fishermen at a loss for sport.

    October 6, 2010 at 1:54 pm |
  728. Robert

    I would deffinately prefer the natural salmon fish but i think that if they did enough research on the geneticly modified salmon and it was healthy and didnt give you any diseases or got sick from it i would it. There is really nothing wrong with it if it doesnt harm us.

    October 6, 2010 at 1:56 pm |
  729. Sara

    Scientists have already thought of enough ways to change how we live, but now they want to change how we eat? Any genetically manipulated animal made under a microscope won't be on my plate.

    October 6, 2010 at 1:58 pm |
  730. Matt

    I would still eat the salmon. Its the same fish, just larger, which means more meat!

    October 6, 2010 at 1:58 pm |
  731. Matt

    I would still eat the salmon. Its the same fish, just larger, which means more meat!

    October 6, 2010 at 1:58 pm |
  732. Daniel

    I think their still needs to testing on it .ya the fish are bigger but will it harm us in the long run?

    October 6, 2010 at 2:00 pm |
  733. Kinsey

    I would maybe try it once but eating a genentically altered fish is like camping indoors. It's cheating in a sense. I haven't heard of many people who have died from eating a normal salmon, so why change it? Pretty soon our planet will have nothing left that hasn't been altered and then what will we do? Try to make the first genetically altered food even more altered?

    October 6, 2010 at 3:21 pm |
  734. Dani

    Well if it is ok to eat then i'm going to eat. If it is not good to eat then i'm NOT going to eat it, but i love samon.

    October 6, 2010 at 4:07 pm |
  735. Matt

    I hate salmon but genetically modified salmon...REALY I THINK ITS STUPID

    October 6, 2010 at 4:09 pm |
  736. charlit

    i will not eat that samon because it might make me fat.the samon has to be tested first

    October 6, 2010 at 4:11 pm |
  737. alexandra

    How would you like it if a salmon came up to you an modified your DNA? Just because we're at the top of the food chain doesn't mean we can go messing with nature.

    October 6, 2010 at 4:14 pm |
  738. alexandra

    that's gross.

    October 6, 2010 at 4:15 pm |
  739. alexandra

    Everyone worries about the stupid fish is gonna kill us. They should be wondering if we're gonna kill the stupid fish!!!!!! come on people have a heart!!!!!! ❤

  740. Ashley

    if you eat the salmon that has a disease and it gives you a disease then they have the right to sue the company that makes it and in these economic times no one can

    October 6, 2010 at 4:38 pm |
  741. Ashley

    if you eat the salmon that has a disease and it gives you a disease then they have the right to sue the company that makes it and in these economic times no one can afford the time or money to do that plus the fact that if they have a certain chemical and some people are allergic to it it could be dangerous. plus things are the way their supposed to be we shouldnt be messing with the balance of nature. so i am aganst messing with the way things were made because the were made that way for a reason and were and are that way for a reason

    October 6, 2010 at 4:46 pm |
  742. Clark

    What if people ate salmon that is mutated...will they be mutated too and have powers?

    October 6, 2010 at 6:09 pm |
  743. Trevor

    Wow. thats wrong. Why would anyone want to eat this?? Theese could easily have diseases and nasty stuff in them... Yuck.

    October 6, 2010 at 10:38 pm |
  744. Taylor

    no i would not want to eat geneticlly mutated salmon...

    October 7, 2010 at 11:37 am |

    why is everyone messing with nature i think we should leve it alone

    October 7, 2010 at 1:01 pm |
  746. James

    its a good and bad idea. It's good because we won't eat as much salmon but we still haven't done enough tests we should do more tests

    October 7, 2010 at 4:53 pm |
  747. Miranda

    I would eat it. It's fish, just screwed up. Yum.

    October 7, 2010 at 6:36 pm |
  748. Julie

    heyy im not quite a fan but salmon that is bigger than normal somting up
    COUNT ME OUT!!!!!!!!! 😦

    October 7, 2010 at 8:43 pm |
  749. A.J.

    I wouldn't eat that if I were you! There have been a lot of recalls on all kinds of foods. I wouldn't eat anything on steroids anyway.

    October 7, 2010 at 9:11 pm |
  750. Hannah

    I don't like salmon personally, but i think its a pretty good idea. It's good because with larger fish it would feed more people. Although we would need to do more tests to positively make sure it is edible. Also to make sure it woun't change any dna or geans.

    October 7, 2010 at 9:37 pm |
  751. Amara

    I don't think they should make the salmon bigger because it might cause the people who ate it health problems or even disease.

    October 8, 2010 at 8:26 am |
  752. Ariel

    The salmon debate is bad. Beacuse they may put something bad for people. They may cause a knew sickness in the word ho knows what wil happen.

    October 8, 2010 at 9:56 am |
  753. Ostin

    the thing they are doing with salmon is wrong. i donT like fish but i don't want my famly getting sick.

    October 8, 2010 at 9:57 am |
  754. Jordy

    i think is a good idea becuse the fish are goin to be biger

    October 8, 2010 at 9:57 am |
  755. Stephanie

    I wouldn't eat samon because i don't eat fish at all! If my mom was cooking salmon tonight i tell her what about the news because she listens to the news.

    October 8, 2010 at 10:03 am |
  756. jordan

    I think why sould you change nature nature is its self it doesnt need basically fish steriods the fish will grow naturelly not with in hansments.

    Its not a bad idea its just not a very good one. What if you get sick. I think scientists should do more tests.

    i think they shouldnt mess with nature.they could make the fish become extinct.the fish may also may not be safe.

    All I can say to Cheyanne's comment is that the only way I would eat it is if my mom faked that it was not the messed up one. Besides I don't even really like fish. Especially not salmon. Yuck! 😦 ;(

    I think it's a bad idea because if we wanted more salmon in the world we should just stop messing with them for a couple of years.

    I personally hate fish but if I did like it I would have more tests on the modified salmon before I even sniffed it much rather take a bite!

    I would eat it. First of all it's food. Secondly, a genetic altering in fish won't affect us in any way. People here are just being paranoid and naive.

    i think that i would rather have the good old fashion stuff but i barely like fish

    I think that if stores sell them and my mom or I buy it, it is okay!

    Salmon is the best type of fish! Nothing is can make it better. I think that the people who are doing this are just trying to get attention. No attention they get from me!!!! CNN STUDENT NEWS RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I, personally, would never touch that salmon. I think it's gross...and they shouldn't be messing with them in the first place.

    ANYTHING geneticaly engineered should be exclusively reserved for death row prisoners, not innocent shoppers!

    The overgrown salmon could crossbreed if it got loose and then there would be big, poisoned fish everywhere! YUK.

    Most importantly I think we all want to have even more test on the salmon. Until it has gone through test after test after test, then I would maybe eat it. After another test of course.

    Why would you want to eat anything that was geneticly changed? God made salmon the way they are for a reason.

    I would eat normal fish. When you mess with something your body isn't used to it can effect you in a bad way.

    I would stick with the natural kind because I am not sure that slmon will kill me or not!

    I would probably not eat the genetically modified salmon because, what if the salmon is no longer safe to eat after it is modified, it might be our next epidemic. People all over the world would be getting sick

    why would they do they do that.
    I would not it, if there was only the big salmon in my life.
    so make it stop.

    I eat all kinds of food, but I love fish. I would eat the new fish only if I knew it was safe. Safety is the most important when you know of all the diseases that you could get from fish.

    I would be most eagerly accepting to eat the genetically modified salmon, you know, if I ate fish. All it is is that it is salmon with some other plant or animals DNA in side of it (lucky I payed attention in science class yesterday). It would not harm you. Chance are, the DNA that was injected into the mother salmon, was probably from one of your favorite vegies or meats. You would eat an egg, won't you? Well the egg is teaming with the DNA of the mother hen and the father chicken. The only DNA that will harm a person is that of bacterial cell. I highly doubt that a salmon farmer would inject his fish with a potent substance.

    I would eat it as long as it tasted good.

    im a salmon kina guy and the genically alters salmon dont look healthy i wouldnt eat it if my life depended on it

    I think the genetically altered salmon is a good idea, but not for people. People could eat the natual salmon and, as long as it`s healthy, could use the modified salmon for animals at parks and zoos, like bears.
