If the FDA were to approve the salmon, they would be mainly sterile and grown at inland fish farms. AquaBounty claims that the salmon would be contained, but environmental groups are concerned that they will escape. Another issue is that like other genetically modified foods, the salmon could end up in the grocery store without any labeling.
