After decades of indecision, the Food and Drug Administration has finally approved its first genetically modified animal as safe to eat. Welcome a fast-growing GM Atlantic Salmon to your plate.
Hey, you, what’s your favorite fish? Oh, salmon, that’s cool. Except that “salmon” may not have been what you think it was at all. So what was it?
Here’s your feel good story for the day. NOAA researchers have captured what are probably the best aerial photos of wild Killer Whales ever and are here to explain how the images demonstrate an incredibly strong, collaborative family bond.
“This has got to be one of the best days of my Presidency,” Obama tells the camera shortly before Bear Grylls feeds him a nasty old piece of bear-ravaged salmon he found beside a river in Alaska.
It’s officially summer, which means the salmon are running in Alaska’s Katami National Park which means the local brown bears are poking around there to eat them which means the BearCam is back up for the season. I just watched for like three minutes and I saw a bear!
If the salmon won't come to the ocean, then the ocean will come to the salmon. Well, not quite: Tanker trucks will take them there. Such are the extreme measures in California this spring, as drought forces major salmon hatcheries to funnel their fish into tanker trucks and ride them straight to the Pacific.
Fish tends to spoil fast, even when kept on ice. So to ensure that farm-raised salmon remain at peak of their freshness (read: still swimming) for whole trip to back to shore for processing, Rolls-Royce is building the world's largest mobile aquarium/meat wagon.
The number one reason most of us grab an unhealthy meal over a healthy one is convenience. Junk food is ready to be stuffed in your face, and when you're short on time, cooking is one of the first things to go out the window. Today we're going to show you three super simple, healthy, protein-packed meals you can make…
Shrimp fountains don't grow on trees, you know—nor do Ahi Tuna steaks, Fish McBites, or fried calamari. But that hasn't stopped an increasingly affluent human population from annually demanding more and more seafood. As a result, an estimated 85 percent of the ocean's fish stocks are now either fully exploited or…
In 2008, after what has been referred to as an "unusually severe storm," a Panama facility for genetically engineered AquAdvantage® Salmon lost its first commercial-size batch of fish. The entire batch—poof!—vanished.
I didn't know, but the Kurile Lake—in the Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia—is known for being the largest red salmon run in the world. People and bears go then to catch them, both on pictures and for eating.
By adding a bit of silver to a thin layer of salmon sperm DNA and sandwiching it all between two electrodes, scientists have created a data storage device that could lead to a cheaper replacement for silicon.
The world consumes more than 2 million metric tons of Salmon annually—both farmed and wild. That's a lot of lox. And to get that much fish to market in a timely manner, one can't gut them by hand. That's why there's the Gutmaster8000.
The Great Salmon Virus Scare
In California, some impressionable, young Chinook Salmon in the Sacramento river are heading down the wrong path. A path leading towards death and destruction. A path otherwise known as the San Francisco Bay. To get these disenfranchised fish on the right track, the Department of Water Resources are installing an…
This second MacGyver Chef recipe, fish in a dishwasher, is a true classic, yet I had no great luck. I tried on two machines, and though edible, the resulting dish was either sashimi or cat food.
Andrew Steckl, a photonics expert from the University of Cincinnatti, has discovered that salmon sperm makes for better LEDs. He came to this disgusting discovery from analyzing biological materials and coming to the conclusion that DNA serves as a better material for intensifying LED properties. The best part: the…
