Anti-Frankenfish Resolution Passes Alaska House

Today, the Alaska State House approved a resolution (HJR5) by Representative Geran Tarr (D-Anchorage) opposing the federal Food and Drug Administration’s approval of Genetically Modified Salmon in the United States. This action brings the 28th Alaska State Legislature one step closer to joining the Alaska Congressional Delegation and the governor in standing with Alaska’s fishermen against “Frankenfish.”

“It’s important that Alaskan’s have one, unified voice on this issue. We need to tell the FDA that we will not support Frankenfish in our waters,” said Tarr. “I want to thank my colleagues in the House for supporting this resolution, and I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Senate to pass it as well.”

The resolution now goes to the Alaska Senate for consideration.
