Abstract
The need for identification and detection of genetically modified (GM) products is a must. Labeling and traceability of GM material are important to address the concerns of both the consumers and the regulator authority. In the present study, a reliable technique was developed to detect the presence of GM Salmon (Salmo salar) and Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) carrying a transgenic growth hormone (GH) gene construct. The results revealed the absence of GM products in all tested samples (25 samples from each product type). The developed screening method in this research will permit greater coverage of the possible GM ingredient in fish products in the Egyptian markets.

Key words: GMO detection, Fish products, mislabeling, foreign genes, PCR.
