This article follows what was supposed to become a new salmon for the aquaculture industry on its travels through Norwegian society during the 1980s. This is a history of a new animal technology that was born out of the biotechnology hype of the 1980s. The article takes Edmund Russell’s claim that the tools of historians of technology can be utilized for investigating animals as technologies as a point of departure. However, instead of investigating the construction of the fish, the article focuses on how the new creature was integrated into society through controversy.
