    Are they saying that they gmo'd carp with an all-fish gene? If so, not sure if I like messing with nature to give us what we need from nature. I think I am reading that they selected for it in the offspring from a recessive trait they brought out via breeding pairs that had the trait naturally.

    Also, if so, that would seem to indicate that all fish that have that gene naturally have the capability to produce the omega 3s from something other than diet.

    I was aware that Lake Trout was high in DHA, but not well over some of the best ocean species. The huge difference is in LNA, an omega 3 I had never heard of:


    Siscowet Lake Trout: http://www.seagrant.umn.edu/newsletter/2002/12/siscowet_trout_a_plague_of_riches.html

    Walnut has an astronomical LNA rating of 10.4 way down in the Other category on that list. The only o3 in that food.

    EDIT: just found that LNA = ALA = alpha-linolenic acid
