From Wed. July 29-The Australian Broadcasting

Marine Pest transformed into Health Product

Local company Refined Protein Resources has been given a 12 month permit by the Environment Department to extract high-grade bio-active elements from the pests for use in pharmaceutical products.

The Director Ambrose Coad says the minerals are in high demand.

"There are a lot of supplements out there, tablets, powders and so forth that have calcium, magnesium and these other trace elements in them," he said.

Ha! Good Luck!!
