Scientists bid to create new GM crop
Published 24 January 2014
team of scientists at Rothamsted have been working on the Camelina plant - or false flax - for 15 years, modifying its genes to create a new variety which contains Omega 3 fish oils.
Scientists hope this could revolutionise the fish industry.
Farmed fish make up half the fish we eat and they have to be fed on Omega 3 oils - this is currently done by feeding them wild fish taken from the Oceans.
