Scientist Develops Trout With Six-Pack Abs

A 10-year effort by University of Rhode Island scientist Terry Bradley to develop transgenic rainbow trout with enhanced muscle growth has yielded fish with what have been described as six-pack abs and muscular shoulders. This development could ultimately provide a boost to the aquaculture industry.

    • Once a week we treat ourselves to some of the best sushi from one of the top rated sushi restaurants in NJ. The Japanese owner personally picks and buys all his fish from the highest quality fresh fish vendors.
      The fresh salmon sashimi (raw salmon) tastes buttery and feels velvety with perfect marbling.
      If your fish farm fish can match that, I'd be interested to find out.
      We get farm raised salmon from our local wegmans supermarket. Wegmans is known for their quality and their fresh farm raised More..

    • as opposed to seafish who ingest the multitudes of crap we dump into the ocean?

      which gets me thinking, if athletes use this, there is no way it could be detected by drugs tests

    • Aye , they're all polluted to an extent . Most of the pollution stays near the coastlines . Where we farm our seafish . I've know a few guys who've worked on the farms , and they're allowed a take home , very few take it . Coz like the chickens , about a third of their diet's drugs to at least try and keep them healthy , but they're not . They're scabby bastards with lumps and sores , and a lot more mercury than wild fish . A lot have closed or struggling , only the big Corps sticking it out and More..

    • These trouts are fed with wild fish (pellets are made of FISH), so you get higher concentrated shit using farmed fish. Every kilo of farmed fish needs many kilos of perfectly good wild fish to grow. Farming is like shooting in your own foot.

  • Just feed 'em a diet of McDonald's. A lot cheaper and same results. Fatter fish.

  • I worked on a salmon farm in Norway and we'd get free salmon fairly often, but usually the only ones who would take it were the 'asylum seekers'. The meat is close to tasteless and almost a freakish color from the dyes introduced with the food. Not to mention the parasites, ulcers, and various other nasty shit that comes from being penned underwater.

  • I suppose it's no worse than double-muscled cattle. Still makes me feel uneasy somehow, though...
