"HOT" Flash notice!

This came over from the Rainbowfish mailing list tonight,  thought
someone might like to hear about this.  Time to stock up on eggs before
the price goes out the roof.  Jim C.

Gary Jensen at USDA passed this along this morning - might be time to

     Emergency Brine Shrimp Closure.  On Oct. 27, 1997, the Utah Div.
of Wildlife Resources ordered an emergency closure of the Great Salt
brine shrimp egg harvest, due to threat of overharvesting and the poor
commercial quality of brine shrimp eggs.  The harvesting season normally

runs from Oct. 1 through Jan. 31.  About 90% of the brine shrimp eggs
exported to prawn farms in Asia. [Assoc Press]
