US PAtent Laws let you patent genetically engineered fish, so presumably,
no one can sell TG ZDs without permission or approval of the company. The
other issue is that they're claiming to only be releasing females -- not
males. How exactly you tell male zebrafish from female zebrafish before
they're fully grown, I've no idea, but.... Once grown, it's easy enough,
but from what I've seen, these are still juvies.
