Stop Glofish risk of genetic pollution to the environment!
What makes the fish glow is a gene scientists gave them—not from another fish, but from sea coral. The glowing fish, originally invented by scientists in Singapore for detecting water pollution. To some, creating transgenic organisms—with genes from entirely different species—is a night-and-day difference from traditional breeding. GloFish™ fluorescent fish are beautiful and unique fish that were originally bred to help detect environmental pollutants(now it trying to kill the environmental).
It was only recently that scientists realized the public's interest in sharing the benefits of this research. GloFish™ fluorescent fish are safe for the environment and make wonderful pets for new hobbyists and experienced enthusiasts alike(the following line is not true). The glowing fish, originally invented by scientists in Singapore for detecting water pollution, will soon go on sale as pets everywhere in the U.S. except California, which has a ban on the sale of any genetically modified fish—a law intended to protect the environment (Therefore we need to prevent it). Right now, the fish are available in red, but other colors are in the pipeline.
To prevent spreading Glofish around the world and polluting water. Glofish may cause environmental problems and fish might disappear. If Glofish are going to be sold it is like allowing people to put pollution in the water legally. We don't have any idea what they are or what they will do to natural so why would we let Glofish be legal for sales. This will eventually cause environmental problem as these animals are accidentally or intentionally released into the wild, and could cause potential threats to public and animal health. Help stop genetic pollution! If fish is sold people should have licence and not use it for fishing bait, experiments, releasing it in nature, etc. Glofish should only remain in the fish tank and not in the wild.
