Glofish

How is the organism genetically modified?

Fish’ we have come to a conclusion that we believe that this genetically modified organisms benefits out weigh the risks, therefore we believe that this would have a positive impact on the society.

What are the advantages of the organism to society and the environment?

Genetically modified (GM) fish have considerable potential to further increase the yield of fish farms but have prompted serious concerns both in Europe and in the USA about the possible environmental impact on wild species

What are the risks of Glofish the organism to society and the environment?

They Genetically Modified organisms benefits out weigh risks and I believe that this would have a positive impact on the society and decision were that this modified organism does not harm the environment or surrounding organisms,

they were released into the wild breed.

What is the purpose for the creation of the organism?

The purpose for the creation of the organism These genetically modified ‘Glo Fish’ were created by adding a natural fluorescent gene and then breeding off springs. Therefore, there is no danger of these genetically modified organisms in harming or having negative impacts on the environment or other surrounding organisms.

What is the purpose for the creation of the organism?

The GloFish were originally bred to help detect environmental pollutants. Scientists hope to one day quickly and easily determine when a waterway is contaminated by adding a natural fluorescence gene to the fish. The first step in developing the GloFish was to create a fish that would be fluorescent all the time. Scientists soon realized the public's interest in sharing the benefits of this research, which lead to a process of the GloFish.The process of developing the GloFish begins by adding a fluorescence gene to the fish before it hatches from its egg. Once the gene integrates into the genome of the embryo, the developing fish will be able to pass the fluorescence gene along to its offspring upon maturity.
