Join our FREE WEBINAR where we'll be discussing the risks of genetically engineered (GE) salmon in the Northwest region! The webinar features the launch of the new short film: “Salmon People - The Risks of Genetically Engineered Fish for the Pacific Northwest.”

Heather Day, Moderator, Community Alliance for Global Justice

Salmon is a cultural and ecological keystone species in the Northwest, making the approval of GE salmon a distinct point of concern for communities in this region. Northwest tribes and tribal members have voiced strong concerns around the potential impacts of corporations producing and distributing GE salmon, and have initiated political opposition at state and national levels in response to the biotech firm, AquaBounty Inc.’s submission for approval to market GE salmon in the U.S.
