AquaBounty Technologies sukkel om hul geneties gemodifiseerde salm goedgekeur te kry

AquaBounty is besig om hul geneties gemodifiseerde salm deur die FDA goedgekeur te kry sodat dit op die mark verkoop kan word. Die onderneming sukkel gerapporteer 'n verlies van $ 2,7 miljoen in 2011 en 'n netto verlies van $ 5,3 miljoen in 2010.

Die uitvoerende hoof van AquaBounty, Ron Stotish, hou die onderneming lewendig deur die bedryfskoste met 30 persent te besnoei, wat die onderneming in staat sal stel om vroeg in 2013 deur te kom. 'n aanduiding van die vordering van die FDA met ons aansoek, terwyl ons voortgaan met ons R & D -werk en voorbereiding vir die kommersialiseringsfase.

Die onderneming wag nou op goedkeuring vir die omgewingsbeoordeling, wat normale produksie van die AquaBounty AquAdvantage Salmon moontlik maak. Met AquAdvantage kan die Atlantiese salm in 18 maande tot 'n markgrootte van ongeveer £ 8 groei, vergeleke met die normale 36 maande wat nodig is.

Binne die volgende paar maande verwag AquaBounty dat hul aangepaste salm FDA -goedkeuring sal ontvang en gereed sal wees vir kommersialisering. Die grootste aandeelhouer, Kakha Bendukidze, is egter skepties oor die genetiese modifikasie wat tydens 'n verkiesingsjaar goedgekeur word.

Maar na die onlangse verwerping van die Senaat van 'n wysiging wat vereis dat die gewysigde salm dieselfde wetenskaplike en ekonomiese analise moet ondergaan wat ander federale visserye ondergaan, wil dit voorkom asof die aangepaste salm stadig, maar sekerlik die mark binnekom.


#BlockCorporateSalmon: AQUABOUNTY BAITS PHILADELPHIA AS TOETSVAKKE VIR HULLE EERSTE VERKOOP VAN ONWAARLIK GODKENDE GENETIES GENIETEERDE SALM

Onbewuste Philadelphians eet binnekort onwetend die eerste geneties gemanipuleerde dier wat op Amerikaanse markte vir menslike gebruik vrygelaat word. AquaBounty Technologies (NASDAQ: AQB) beplan hierdie eerste kommersiële skaaloes van geneties gemanipuleerde (GE/GMO) salm hierdie maand en werk saam met Samuels & Son, 'n plaaslike seekosverspreider met sy hoofkwartier in Philadelphia, om hierdie omstrede produk na die eters te bring borde. GE-salm sal waarskynlik nie duidelike etikette op die verpakking bevat wat aandui dat hulle geneties gemanipuleer is nie, en dit hoef ook nie as 'n geneties gemanipuleerde etiket op die restaurant se spyskaarte te wees nie, wat dit vir verbruikers moeilik maak om dit te vermy. In November 2020 het die Amerikaanse distrikshof in die Noordelike Distrik van Kalifornië die goedkeuring van geneties gemanipuleerde salm onwettig verklaar op grond van verskeie oortredings van die omgewingswet. Dit verhoed egter nie dat GE -salm in die VSA verkoop word terwyl omgewingsbeoordelings aan die gang is nie. Sjefs, gemeenskapsorganisasies, verbruikers en inheemse gemeenskapslede van regoor die land is sterk teen hierdie omstrede vrylating. Boonop het Aramark (ARMK), die voedselbedieningsbestuuronderneming van 14,6 miljard dollar, met sy hoofkwartier in Philadelphia, onlangs sy maatskappybeleid in Januarie 2021 opgedateer en GE salm verwerp, met verwysing na moontlike negatiewe gevolge vir wilde salmbevolkings en inheemse gemeenskappe.

AquaBounty probeer goeie publisiteit en handelsmerkherkenning in Philadelphia werf. Verlede maand het die maatskappy 50 000 pond van hul konvensionele salm van die industriële boerdery aan 'n plaaslike voedselorganisasie geskenk weens 'n groeiende agterstand vis wat hulle nie verkoop het nie. "Hulle sit aan die einde van die dag net salm op 'n bord vir wins," sê Steve Kurian, visserman van Wild For Salmon in Bloomsburg, PA. 'Hulle sê daar is geen kans dat die vis in wilde populasies kan ontsnap nie, maar as gekweekte vis 'n aanduiding is, is dit 'n kwessie van wanneer, nie as nie. Samuels en Son beveel aan om die DNA van die wilde salm fundamenteel te verander, wat die hele omgewing kan verander. En dan gebruik hulle onwetende salmverbruikers van die ooskus om voordeel te trek uit hierdie skade. ”

Die Muckleshoot -stam en aangeslote stamme van Noordwes -Indiërs (ATNI), 'n organisasie sonder winsbejag, wat 57 noordwestelike stamregerings uit Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Noord -Kalifornië, Wes -Montana en Suidoos -Alaska verteenwoordig, het 'n resolusie teen GE -salm uitgespreek met verwysing na die risiko wat dit inhou oor wilde salm, hul verdragsregte en lewenswyse. Die vrylating van GE -salm is nie net 'n aanval op inheemse gemeenskappe wat al van ouds af salm bestuur nie, maar ook op wilde salm en die ekosisteem waarin hulle leef.

'Wilde salm, gemaak soos die Skepper dit bedoel het, is 'n noodsaaklike deel van die kultuur, lewenswyse, dieet en geestelike identiteit van ons mense, en daarom het ons voorouers uitdruklik ons ​​reg op visvang beskerm in ons verdrae met die Amerikaanse regering , ”Het president Fawn Sharp van die Quinault Indian Nation en die National Congress of American Indians gesê. “Geneties gemodifiseerde salm bedreig die volhoubaarheid, gesondheid en suiwerheid van hierdie onvervangbare bron direk en onaanvaarbaar. Ondanks die beslissing van die federale regbank dat geneties gemanipuleerde salm nie wettiglik te koop goedgekeur is nie, oortree 'n amorele en hebsugtige korporasie die wet en beledig hy talle stamme deur hierdie monsteragtige, onnatuurlike en ongesonde produk aan verbruikers te stoot, en ons sal nie daarvoor staan ​​nie Dit."

Vanweë die verskillende gesondheids- en omgewingsprobleme rondom GE -salm, die gebrek aan verbruikersvraag en die teenkanting van inheemse salmbeskermers, is daar 'n aktiewe beweging wat 'n beroep op GE -salm wil boikot by aankoms op die mark. Die #BlockCorporateSalmon -veldtog het Aramark gedwing om 'n sterker verbintenis te maak om GE -salm nie te verkoop nie en word steeds deur openbare steun vir hierdie boikot gewerf. Teen daardie tyd het meer as 80 voedselkleinhandelaars, waaronder die grootste in die VSA, reeds 'n verbintenis aangegaan om nie geneties gemanipuleerde salm te verkoop nie, insluitend groot voedseldiensbestuursondernemings, Sodexo (SDXAY) en Compass Group (CMPGF), en die Amerikaanse kruidenierswinkel, Whole Voedsel (WFM). Verskeie belanghebbendes wat die seekosbedryf betrek (bv. Global Salmon Initiative, Aquaculture Stewardship Council, FishWise) het ook GE -salm gekant.

Oor #BlockCorporateSalmon -veldtog

Die #BlockCorporateSalmon -veldtog is daarop gemik om geneties gemanipuleerde salm en korporatiewe uitbreiding in die see en waterskeidings te blokkeer. Aan die einde van 2019 lede van Uprooted & amp Rising (UNR) uit die noordweste van die Stille Oseaan, ondersteun deur die voortgesette werk om GE -salm teë te staan ​​deur die Community Alliance for Global Justice (CAGJ) en die werk om die akwakultuur op industriële skaal teen te staan ​​deur die Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA) ) het hom aangesluit by die stryd van inheemse leiers plaaslik en vissers -advokate nasionaal om die #BlockCorporateSalmon -veldtog te vorm en 'n beroep op die UNR -netwerk en jongmense oral gedoen om te help. Die rol wat die #BlockCorporateSalmon -veldtog probeer speel in die jarelange stryd om salm te verdedig, is om 'n wêreldwye boikot van geneties gemanipuleerde salm te koördineer en terug te keer teen enige beleid wat die voedselsoewereiniteit bedreig. Ons doen dit deur inheemse oplossings op te hef om wilde salm te beskerm en te herstel en valse en skadelike oplossings soos geneties gemanipuleerde salm en akwakultuurprojekte op industriële skaal te verwerp. Die doelwitte van die veldtog is om: 1) die publiek op te voed oor gemeenskapsbeheer van ons voedselstelsel wat inheemse kennis sentreer as die pad vorentoe, 2) visboerdery op industriële skaal te blokkeer, 3) die geneties gemanipuleerde salm van AquaBounty te blokkeer en die publiek weer te herlei wat stamme alreeds gesê het in teenstelling met hierdie frankenfish, en 4) instellings, soos SeaGrant-universiteite, aanspreeklik hou vir die fasilitering van die korporatiewe agenda agter die akwakultuur op industriële skaal.

#BlockCorporateSalmon: AQUABOUNTY BAITS PHILADELPHIA AS TOETSVAKKE VIR HULLE EERSTE VERKOOP VAN ONWAARLIK GODKENDE GENETIES GENIETEERDE SALM

Onbewuste Philadelphians eet binnekort onwetend die eerste geneties gemanipuleerde dier wat op Amerikaanse markte vir menslike gebruik vrygelaat word. AquaBounty Technologies (NASDAQ: AQB) beplan hierdie eerste kommersiële skaaloes van geneties gemanipuleerde (GE/GMO) salm hierdie maand en werk saam met Samuels & Son, 'n plaaslike seekosverspreider met sy hoofkwartier in Philadelphia, om hierdie omstrede produk na die eters te bring borde. GE-salm sal waarskynlik nie duidelike etikette op die verpakking bevat wat aandui dat hulle geneties gemanipuleer is nie, en dit hoef ook nie as 'n geneties gemanipuleerde etiket op die restaurant se spyskaarte te wees nie, wat dit vir verbruikers moeilik maak om dit te vermy. In November 2020 het die Amerikaanse distrikshof in die Noordelike Distrik van Kalifornië die goedkeuring van geneties gemanipuleerde salm onwettig verklaar op grond van verskeie oortredings van die omgewingswet. Dit verhoed egter nie dat GE -salm in die VSA verkoop word terwyl omgewingsbeoordelings aan die gang is nie. Sjefs, gemeenskapsorganisasies, verbruikers en lede van die inheemse gemeenskap van regoor die land is sterk teen hierdie kontroversiële vrylating. Boonop het Aramark (ARMK), die voedselbedieningsbestuuronderneming van 14,6 miljard dollar, met sy hoofkwartier in Philadelphia, onlangs sy maatskappybeleid in Januarie 2021 opgedateer en GE salm verwerp, met verwysing na moontlike negatiewe gevolge vir wilde salmbevolkings en inheemse gemeenskappe.

AquaBounty probeer goeie publisiteit en handelsmerkherkenning in Philadelphia werf. Verlede maand het die maatskappy 50 000 pond van hul konvensionele salm van die industriële boerdery aan 'n plaaslike voedselorganisasie geskenk weens 'n groeiende agterstand vis wat hulle nie verkoop het nie. "Hulle sit aan die einde van die dag net salm op 'n bord vir wins," sê Steve Kurian, visserman van Wild For Salmon in Bloomsburg, PA. 'Hulle sê daar is geen kans dat die vis in wilde populasies kan ontsnap nie, maar as gekweekte vis 'n aanduiding is, is dit 'n kwessie van wanneer, nie as nie. Samuels & Son beveel aan om die DNA van die wilde salm fundamenteel te verander, wat die hele omgewing kan verander. En dan gebruik hulle onwetende salmverbruikers van die ooskus om voordeel te trek uit hierdie skade. ”

Die Muckleshoot -stam en aangeslote stamme van Noordwes -Indiërs (ATNI), 'n organisasie sonder winsbejag, wat 57 noordwestelike stamregerings uit Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Noord -Kalifornië, Wes -Montana en Suidoos -Alaska verteenwoordig, het 'n resolusie teen GE -salm uitgespreek met verwysing na die risiko wat dit inhou oor wilde salm, hul verdragsregte en lewenswyse. Die vrylating van GE -salm is nie net 'n aanval op inheemse gemeenskappe wat al van ouds af salm bestuur nie, maar ook op wilde salm en die ekosisteem waarin hulle leef.

'Wilde salm, gemaak soos die Skepper dit bedoel het, is 'n noodsaaklike deel van die kultuur, lewenswyse, dieet en geestelike identiteit van ons mense, en daarom het ons voorouers uitdruklik ons ​​reg op visvang beskerm in ons verdrae met die Amerikaanse regering , ”Het president Fawn Sharp van die Quinault Indian Nation en die National Congress of American Indians gesê. “Geneties gemodifiseerde salm bedreig die volhoubaarheid, gesondheid en suiwerheid van hierdie onvervangbare bron direk en onaanvaarbaar. Ondanks die beslissing van die federale regbank dat geneties gemanipuleerde salm nie wettiglik te koop goedgekeur is nie, oortree 'n amorele en hebsugtige korporasie die wet en beledig hy talle stamnasies deur hierdie monsteragtige, onnatuurlike en ongesonde produk aan verbruikers te stoot, en ons sal nie daarvoor staan ​​nie Dit."

Vanweë die verskillende gesondheids- en omgewingsprobleme rondom GE -salm, die gebrek aan verbruikersvraag en die teenkanting van inheemse salmbeskermers, is daar 'n aktiewe beweging wat 'n beroep op GE -salm wil boikot by aankoms op die mark. The #BlockCorporateSalmon Campaign pushed Aramark to make a stronger commitment to not sell GE salmon and are continuing to garner public support for this boycott. By then more than 80 food retailers, including the largest in the U.S., had already made commitments to not sell genetically engineered salmon, including major food service management companies, Sodexo (SDXAY) and Compass Group (CMPGF), and U.S. grocery retailer, Whole Foods (WFM). Several stakeholders engaging the seafood industry (e.g., Global Salmon Initiative, Aquaculture Stewardship Council, FishWise) have also opposed GE salmon.

About #BlockCorporateSalmon Campaign

The #BlockCorporateSalmon campaign aims to block genetically engineered salmon and corporate expansion in the ocean and watersheds. In late 2019 Uprooted & Rising (UNR) members from the Pacific Northwest, supported by the ongoing work to oppose GE salmon by the Community Alliance for Global Justice (CAGJ) and the work to oppose industrial scale aquaculture by the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA), joined the struggle of Indigenous leaders locally and fisher folk advocates nationally to form the #BlockCorporateSalmon campaign and calling on the UNR network and young people everywhere to help. The role that the #BlockCorporateSalmon campaign is trying to play in the long standing fight to defend salmon, is to coordinate a global boycott of genetically engineered salmon and push back against any policy that threatens global food sovereignty. We do this by uplifting Indigenous led solutions to protect and restore wild salmon and reject false and harmful solutions such as genetically engineered salmon and corporate industrial scale aquaculture projects. The goals of the campaign are to: 1) educate the public on community control of our food system centering Indigenous knowledge as the way forward, 2) block industrial-scale fish farming, 3) block AquaBounty’s genetically engineered salmon & re-direct the public to what tribes have already said in opposition to this frankenfish, and 4) hold institutions, such as SeaGrant universities, accountable for facilitating the corporate agenda behind industrial-scale aquaculture.


#BlockCorporateSalmon: AQUABOUNTY BAITS PHILADELPHIA AS TEST SUBJECTS FOR THEIR FIRST U.S. SALE OF UNLAWFULLY APPROVED GENETICALLY ENGINEERED SALMON

Unconsenting Philadelphians will soon unknowingly be eating the first genetically engineered animal to be released in US markets for human consumption. AquaBounty Technologies (NASDAQ: AQB) is planning its first commercial scale harvest of genetically engineered (GE/GMO) salmon this month, and is partnering with Samuels & Son, a regional seafood distributor headquartered in Philadelphia, to bring this controversial product to eaters’ plates. GE salmon likely won’t carry clear on-package labels stating they are genetically engineered, nor are they required to be labeled as genetically engineered on restaurant menus, making it difficult for consumers to avoid purchasing them. In November 2020, the US District Court for the Northern District of California declared the approval of genetically engineered salmon unlawful based on several environmental law violations. However, it does not prevent GE salmon from being sold in the U.S. while environmental reviews are underway. Chefs, community organizations, consumers, and Indigenous community members from across the country are strongly opposing this controversial release. Additionally, Aramark (ARMK), the 14.6 billion dollar foodservice management company headquartered in Philadelphia, recently updated its company policy in January 2021 rejecting GE salmon citing potential negative impacts to wild salmon populations and Indigenous communities.

AquaBounty has been trying to garner good publicity and brand recognition in Philadelphia. Last month, the company donated 50,000 lbs of their conventional, industrial-farmed salmon to a local food charity due to a growing backlog of fish they have not sold. “They’re just putting salmon on a plate for profit at the end of the day,” says Steve Kurian, fisherman with Wild For Salmon based in Bloomsburg, PA. “They say there's no chance of the fish escaping into wild populations, but if farmed fish is any indicator, it's a matter of when, not if. Samuels & Son are promoting to fundamentally change the DNA of the wild salmon which would change the whole environment. And then they're using unknowing salmon consumers of the east coast to make a profit off of this damage.”

The Muckleshoot Tribe and Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians (ATNI), a nonprofit organization representing 57 Northwest tribal governments from Oregon, Idaho, Washington, northern California, western Montana, and southeast Alaska, released a resolution resoundingly opposing GE salmon citing the risk it poses on wild salmon, their treaty rights, and way of life. The release of GE salmon is not only an attack on Indigenous communities who have been stewarding salmon since time immemorial but to wild salmon and the ecosystem they live in.

“Wild salmon, made as the Creator intended, are an essential part of the culture, way of life, diet, and spiritual identity of our people, and that’s why our ancestors explicitly protected our right to fish in our treaties with the United States government,” said President Fawn Sharp of the Quinault Indian Nation and the National Congress of American Indians. “Genetically modified salmon directly and unacceptably threaten the sustainability, health, and purity of this irreplaceable resource. Despite the federal judiciary ruling that genetically engineered salmon have not been legally approved for sale, an amoral and greedy corporation is flouting the law and insulting countless Tribal Nations by pushing this monstrous, unnatural, and unhealthy product to consumers, and we will not stand for it.”

Due to the various health and environmental concerns surrounding GE salmon, the lack of consumer demand, and opposition from Indigenous salmon protectors, there is an active movement calling to boycott GE salmon upon its arrival on the market. The #BlockCorporateSalmon Campaign pushed Aramark to make a stronger commitment to not sell GE salmon and are continuing to garner public support for this boycott. By then more than 80 food retailers, including the largest in the U.S., had already made commitments to not sell genetically engineered salmon, including major food service management companies, Sodexo (SDXAY) and Compass Group (CMPGF), and U.S. grocery retailer, Whole Foods (WFM).

The goals of the campaign are to: 1) educate the public on community control of our food system centering Indigenous knowledge as the way forward, 2) block industrial-scale fish farming, 3) block AquaBounty’s genetically engineered salmon & re-direct the public to what tribes have already said in opposition to this frankenfish, and 4) hold institutions, such as SeaGrant universities, accountable for facilitating the corporate agenda behind industrial-scale aquaculture.
