"Each year millions of farmed salmon escape from open-water net pens, outcompeting wild populations for resources and straining ecosystems," they said in a statement. "We believe any approval of GE salmon would represent a serious threat to the survival of native salmon populations."

The FDA will also consider whether to include any special labels on the alert salmon to alert consumers of its modifications.

ABC News' Lisa Stark contributed to this report.
