Innovative use of Goldfish

Hi all,
	I recently found out that Bermuda'ians use goldfish in an
innovative way. Apparently, the Carib islands do not have any natural
sources of water and must rely on rain as the main source of freshwater.
The people catch rainwater runoff into tanks. However, bugs can take over
the water tank and render the water useless. So, Bermuda'ians have been
adding goldfish to their water tanks to take care of the bugs. They have
used this technique for hundreds of years. The water is, of course,
filtered before use. :) 

	Cool, huh?
