"Quinault Nation slams approval of genetically modified salmon"

Regardless of the science "proving" or disproving the safety of genetic tinkering, there's the matter of wisdom involved.

According to Quinault leader Fawn Sharp in a story at Indianz.com:

"People need to realize that when wild salmon are managed properly, which it is, impetus is placed on habitat protection and restoration. It helps prioritize, and fund, clean water, healthy streams and rivers as well as forests, wetlands and other uplands. It helps us emphasize the clean up and prevention of pollution. It also encourages better treatment of our ocean and even our air, as well as helps safeguard our tribal sacred sites and resources."
