Genetically modified Salmon is now being sold in Canada.
     
For 25-years AquaBounty Technologies has been working on these modified salmon, which has a growth hormone gene to make them grow rapidly.
    
Haldimand-Norfolk MPP Toby Barrett, who is also the Official Opposition Critic to the Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, believes there is a cause for concern with it comes to packaging.
   

   
   
Right now these fish are not labeled to show they have been genetically modified.
   
After three years of testing, the Health Ministry and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency ruled that the genetically modified salmon is as safe and nutritious as conventional salmon.
