The Next 3 Pictures are Pouts from the Eel family. This is what they are Hybriding to make what Aqua Bounty calls a fast growing Salmon. They say the Eel has "natural antifreeze" that allows it to grow in cold waters. And makes it mature faster.
The small Eels are over six foot. The adults can swallow a man easily. A little different from a natural Salmon. The bottom Pout is a large mouth Pout which is also being used to hybrid this Frankenfish. Swimming to an Ocean near you. Eels are natural predators. They eat anything and everything. And if it gets out (and birds do carry things.)other will disappear. Also these new fish will have growth hormones in them. So what will happen to you and your kids when you eat growth hormones? Natives have treaties for catching the natural salmon. And not one Native person has been contacted on this issue as to how it will effect their lives.
