Ope møte i Bergen: Genmodifisert laks


I november 2015 godkjende USA for første gong  ein genmodifisert laks for sal. Selskapet AquaBounty står bak fisken som har fått sett inn eit gen for veksthormon som skal gjere at han veks heile året og når slaktevekta fortare enn annan laks. Korleis vil den genmodifiserte laksen påverke miljøet, og kva vil genmodifiseringa ha å seie for helsa til laksen og dei som skal ete han? Vil den nye laksen truge Noregs stilling som verdas største innan fiskeoppdrett?
