Zebra Fish turning blue

Can anyone give me any information on the recent research into Zebra
Fish in Japan where a pigment is used which reacts when the fish is
stressed and can be used to identify toxins in the water. The toxins
cause the fish to become stressed and the pigment stains the fish.
Certain areas of the fish relate to certain toxins... the whole fish
turning blue if it is in radioactive effluent.

Thanks
