The GloFish, a genetically modified zebra fish which glows when the lights are turned out, will be offered for sale in the US from January 2004, though sale of the fish may be banned in California. Wildlife officials do not see the fish as a threat, but public interest and environmental groups oppose the sale of the fish, which was developed in Singapore, and bred in Florida.
