Organic started being labelled because companies performing genetic modification failed to label,
No, organic started being labeled because organic growers realized they could charge a premium price to meet the demand of scared consumers who think that "non-organic" means "poison", or even just "treated with poison". It has everything to do with ungrounded fears of the consumer, just not the fear of GMOs.
and pay tens of millions of dollars every to NOT label.
What? You don't have to pay money not to label organic or GMO products. The only limit on labeling here is the laws that have been passed about ORGANIC labels, because some producers saw the increased profits from calling their non-strict-organic stuff "organic", so the strict organic people paid their legislators for a law. But that's not a law mandating a warning label like this fish GMO thing would be, it's a law defining "organic" so it becomes an issue for the FTC.
If "GMO" was great they should be able to charge extra for the name.
In a sane and rational world, they could. But it's not a significantly different product so GMO would not be a big selling point. It's an issue of production of the food and what that costs versus what the food tastes like. It's enough that a farmer can produce more food using the same resources and that increases supply.
But we don't live in a sane and rational world. We live in a world with people who are scared to death of the boogeyman of GMO products and no amount of science or reason will convince them. Here's the perfect example: a FISH that is still a FISH except it has a gene from a FISH that makes it grow faster. That's all. It's still a FISH. They didn't put an insecticide gene into it, or a resistance to herbicides, or anything non-FISH. It's not grown outdoors, and even if it does escape it is sterile and cannot reproduce. And yet we have people in this discussion claiming that this FISH will change the. entire. world. What idiotic nonsense.
Of course you establish an additional red herring by claiming a label that was never mentioned, never discussed, and has no relation to genetic modification.
Did you miss the entire point of TFA, that the FDA approved a food product and DID NOT REQUIRE IT TO BE LABELED? Sounds like a label that was mentioned, discussed, and has something to do with the fact that this FISH has been "genetically modified" to me.
But please, let's bring up DDT (an artificial chemical never properly tested), or thalidomide (ditto on pregnant women), instead of talking about a food product that has been eaten by millions of people for thousands of years without deleterious effects. If you can name one person who has been harmed by eating the DNA of a FISH, please produce the evidence. Grown gills or a fin or two? I don't know of one. Do you?
