You Can Now Buy Genetically Engineered Salmon in Canada

GM Salmon In Stores

After 25 years of pushback from environmentalists and various controversies, genetically modified (GM) salmon have at last made it to shelves on the Canadian marketplace. AquaBounty Technologies has sold approximately five tons of “AquAdvantage Salmon” in Canada since its approval there last year. Although the fish were cleared by the FDA in late 2015, conflicts about labeling the fillets have stalled sales in the U.S.

The Maynard, Massachusetts company is the force bringing the GM Atlantic salmon to market. The salmon boast two extra genes that allow them to grow faster: a chinook salmon growth hormone gene that speeds their growth, and a gene from the ocean pout that keeps the chinook growth hormone gene “on” permanently. The end result of these changes is that the engineered AquAdvantage Salmon grow two times faster than typical salmon while consuming 20 to 25 percent less food.

These AquAdvantage Salmon are the first GM animal in the world to go on sale. As such, the product has garnered serious opposition from environmental groups. Beyond the labeling issue, these opponents fear that the fish pose a contamination risk to natural populations should they escape from their breeding tanks. However, as the fish are rendered sterile, and the FDA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have inspected the facility and judged its containment measures to be adequate.

Controversy Over GM Foods

The fiery opposition to GM foods is no surprise. Although a comprehensive analysis from 2016 penned by 20 scientists and based on more than 1,000 studies, testimony from 80 witnesses in public meetings and webinars, and 700 comments submitted by the public found that GM crops are safe to eat and do not harm the environment, many in the public remain unconvinced. Meanwhile, farmers in India are beginning to plant GM mustard crops, and scientists are working to prove the safety of wheat “supercrops.”

Next Gen GMOs

Stranger examples of GM organisms (GMOs) have been making the news recently, such as the GM surrogate hens being tested in the hopes they’ll be able to save rare species of poultry from extinction, and the Impossible Foods meatless burger, which has only recently run into a snag at the FDA concerning not its GM status, but its potential to act as an allergen.

The real breakthrough for products like AquAdvantage Salmon might be time and short consumer memory. As the salmon continues to sell successfully in Canada, other species may join it on the market’s shelves.

Norwegian salmon farmers Cermaq to build smart factory in Arctic Circle

Norwegian salmon farmers Cermaq building smart factory in Arctic Circle

Norwegian salmon and trout farming company Cermaq claims that it is building the world’s first smart factory for salmon in the Arctic Circle.

Following the closure of two processing sites in Norway, the company has tasked German food processing machinery manufacturer Baader and Norwegian automatic identification company CodeIT with building the new state of the art factory. Cermaq is hoping to tap into some of the benefits that have come with the advent of Industry 4.0.

Located in Storskjæret, a part of the Steigen municipality within Nordland county, northern Norway, the factory has been under construction since March 2017, with the first fish anticipated to enter the site by in the second half of 2018.

Visibility of supply chain is key

Atle Kvist is leading the project from Cermaq’s side. Commenting on the plans, Kvist said: “We as an industry are being more and more challenged on documentation and traceability, our green footprint is important to all our future planning and this is why we have chosen CodeIT AS to deliver a solution that fits our requirements very well. They specialize in intelligent and flexible software that gives us the control and visibility we need.”

Cermaq says that while Baader is supplying the machinery, CodeIT is supplying the cross platform inter connectivity and digitization of the new Industry 4.0 facility, supposedly one of the first of its kind in seafood. Working behind the scenes for almost a year, CodeIT has designed a specific product that enables Cermaq to connect and integrate all of the surrounding machines in the production environment.

Cermaq chases a modern salmon facility

“A modern salmon facility takes in the fish, evaluates quality, weight, grading etc. and during all processes automatically determines which department the fish should go to,” said Bjørnar Torsnes, CEO, CodeIT.

“Once we introduce truly interconnected intelligence to these processes we can create efficiency at several orders of magnitude higher than was previously capable. For example, calculating the appropriate ice dosing for different geographical locations of shipments.”
