Upon further research, here are a few things that caught my attention:

#1) There was a bit of Congress lobbying to get it approved.

#2) There is a 5% chance that these fishes could actually become fertile.

#3) These fishes have an extra chromosome and a novel protein not found in any other salmons.

Could you share your sources? (I'm genuinely interested vs. trying to be a dick)

What is the mechanism by which they could become fertile?
