Regional Fish, Kyoto, have received acceptance from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare for genome-edited tiger puffer fish. In the genome-edited fish strain, a leptin receptor regulating appetite was removed, leading to growth at double speed and improved feed utilization efficiency. The high-growth tiger puffer is 1.9 times larger on average and 2.4 times larger than wild-type tiger puffer bred for the same period. It is said that it will be in a state of constantly overfeeding, but it will not become obese, and an edible part with the same composition as the wild type individual is obtained.
