GMO food = OK.

Kind of surprises me that this type of law includes fish, Japanese famously don't really handle fish with care compared to other animals. Also if this type of modification was forbidden wouldn't that make most Koi breeding illegal as well?

It sounds like the real problem is that someone in Thailand is generating (with crispr?) and exporting these fish all over the world. The mom and pop fish shop in Japan just bred them.

I am also interested in experimenting with GMO as it can cure cancer and serious diseases. I don’t have the space and time now, perhaps after retirement,
