Do you think you would be able to tell the difference between genetically engineered salmon and the real thing - its wild-caught counterpart - just by looking at it in the grocery store? I’m not sure I could, and that worries me.

That's why labeling is so important. It's also why we're asking you to join us and take a stand for the future of fish. Sign our petition today and we will hand deliver your message to your elected representatives in California.

I want to know if the food I eat is genetically engineered—and frankly, I don't think that's asking too much.

A bill that would require genetically engineered fish to be labeled in California is scheduled for a vote in the state Assembly this Thursday. Unless we stand together and let our voices be heard, the bill may get killed thanks to aggressive lobbying by the biotech industry. They are working overtime to avoid the labeling of genetically modified fish, knowing full well most Americans would not purchase it if they could easily identify it.

That's why we're asking you to sign our petition and then pick up the phone and call—now.

Our right to know depends on you taking this action!
