Images of the Fish Tomato

May 22, 2011

We recently ran into these depictions of the Fish Tomato:



Tagry posted this Animated GIF on a long LiveJournal debate about GMOs in Russian.



Patrick Collier told us about this painting from 2005, titled “That’s Disgusting (Fish Gene into Tomato)” by Jenny M. Smith which is included in Oregon State University’s College of Agriculture’s art collection.


This painting is based on the same 2003 BBC infographic (.pdf) that we have used in our visual displays such as at the recent Open Engagement conference at Portland State University.



We would love to use photographic imagery of the actual plants as Remote Bioforensic Evidence, but have not met anyone from DNA Plant Technology that has any records yet. Please email us if you know of any photographs of the Fish Tomato from it’s lab test or field test stage (.pdf).
