Correction: to enable the salmon to grow larger, Aquabounty injected growth hormone gene from chinook salmon and a promoter sequence from an antifreeze protein gene from ocean pout. The promoter sequence (a fragment of DNA) acts like an on-switch for the chinook gene so that growth hormone is produced year-round instead of just seasonally (spring and summer).
