Genetically modified (GM) salmon producer AquaBounty has begun the commercial-scale harvest of conventional Atlantic salmon raised at its first US farm in Indiana.

"We’re to the point where we’ll have fish in the market," AquaBounty CEO Sylvia Wulf, told IntraFish.

The harvest at AquaBounty's land-based recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) farm is a key part of the company's plan to deliver US consumers its much-anticipated genetically engineered AquAdvantage salmon later this year.
