NORWAY – After reviewing numerous publications, Norwegian researchers have presented their findings on the current state of knowledge about the use of genetically modified (GM) plant ingredients in fish feed.

The review focuses on fish performance and health, and the fate of DNA fragments from GM plants in the fish.

The researchers are from the National Institute of Seafood and Nutrition Research (NIFES), the Aquaculture Protein Centre’s (APC), the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science (NVH), and the National Veterinary Institute (VI). The researchers base much of the review on experiments they have performed themselves.
