Seafood wholesaler Samuels and Son Seafood is betting on the future of AquaBounty's genetically modified (GM) AquAdvantage salmon, which is set to be sold to US consumers for the first time later this year.

Joe Lasprogata, vice president of new product development at Samuels and Son Seafood, told IntraFish he has been following AquaBounty for decades. He noted the company is proving to be a leader in sustainable aquaculture in the United States, particularly when it comes to its feed-to-fish ratio.
