The first genetically modified animal to be commercialized was the GloFish, a Zebra fish with a fluorescent gene added that allows it to glow in the dark under ultraviolet light. It was released to the US market in 2003. GloFish available in pet stores are now sold in bright red, green, orange-yellow, blue, pink, and purple fluorescent colors. In the European Union, the placing on the market and breeding of genetically modified animals is prohibited.
