Shiny sushi

SushiI love sushi. I also like genetic engineering. And fluorescence is cool. So http://www.glowingsushi.com/ is right up my alley.

My biggest problem with the idea is just that eating whole fishes (even when small zebrafish) doesn't appeal to me. I prefer fillets. But that is just a matter of either skilled microsurgery, or making bigger fluorescent fishes.

Overall, I think making the biosphere more colourful is a lovely idea. Sure, there are glorious beetles, flowers and corals out there, but mammals are usually fairly drab.
