Okay, we made up the last bit, but these fish have been altered to grow far more muscular than normal trout:

Researchers had known of a natural myostatin mutation that allowed for 20 to 25 percent more muscle growth in Belgian blue cattle, but did not know if the same would apply to the different mechanism of muscle growth in fish.
