Alison Van Eenennaam is a Cooperative Extension Specialist in animal biotechnology and genomics at the University of California, Davis who has taken an active role in scientific and regulatory evaluations of a number of genetically engineered animals.

Alison Van Eenennaam discusses the lengthy, tortuous path the company producing the salmon has taken as it has sought regulatory approval from the FDA. She also compares conventional and new forms of animal biotechnologies, focusing on the expected benefits, safety and social acceptance of fast-growing, genetically engineered salmon proposed for contained, land-based aquaculture systems.
