In late 2015, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the sale of AquaBounty Technologies’ genetically modified salmon.
Valerie Segrest, who you may know is the Manager of the Muckleshoot Tribe’s Traditional Food and Medicine Program, was interviewed on Native America Calling about what GM salmon means to her.
The speakers on the program include Valerie, Jaydee Hanson, Senior Policy Analyst at the Center for Food Safety in Washington D.C., and James Dunlap, Chairman of the Yurok Tribe. The Yurok Tribe, located in northern California, have banned GM organisms on their tribal land. (photo credit: http://www.nytimes.com)
