G'day folks

This is the crap that folks were talking about a while back right? Just
passing this along for interests sake.

Astaxanthin Pigment. On Aug. 27, 1999, officials of Igene Biotechnology,
Inc. (Columbia, MD) announced that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency had
approved use of their product AstaXin(R) in diets of cultured fish and
shrimp. This product is a natural source of astaxanthin, a pigment that
imparts red color to the flesh of organisms consuming it. [Igene
