If “the nation’s first genetically altered animal” catches your taste buds’ attention, thank the Food and Drug Administration for OK’ing a fast-growing type of salmon.

AquaBounty Technologies’ new age salmon “will not require special labeling” because the FDA ruled it is “as nutritious as normally grown Atlantic salmon.”

The decision, which had been in limbo for five years, could set off opponents who want the company to make it explicitly clear that the fish is not natural. Some fear the genetically modified fish could breed with those in the wild.
