I don't quite know what to make of this. An odd new slant in
self-publicising, although its effectiveness may be questionable. It's
from the newsgroup for new lists, and I feel compelled to help out by
exposing Annelidans to Dr Tacon's message. Currently the list membership
can be numbered on the fingers of one hand :^) GBR.

As the use of earthworms in solid waste disposal and treatment is      
on the increasing, earthworms will become a by-product which has   
several potential uses. It has been used as a source of protein in        
animal feeds for chickens, pigs, mice and fish and some   
organizations and research institutions have studied this                 
extensively. This research paper reports the nutritional value of 5     
species of earthworms as feed for rainbow trout.
