|AquAdvantage salmon with unmodified salmon, both about 12 months |
of age. Both types of fish reach the same size as adults, but it takes
the non-GMO fish about twice as long. Photo courtesy of AquaBounty.
|Atlantic salmon can reach tremendous size (this one topping|
60 pounds) just by staying in the ocean a few more years
before returning to the river to spawn. Internet photo.
