GM salmon may be able to breed in wild

An interesting salmon study on the breeding capabilities of genetically modified salmon was just released.  The study claims that it may be possible for GM salmon to breed in the wild.  If interbreeding occurs between GM salmon and wild salmon there could be numerous effects that are currently unknown.  It would also compromise the ability for producers and salmon fishers to conclusively claim that their salmon or canned salmon products are from wild non GM sources.
