Get your own shrimp

Sick of buying un-named, generic seafood? Tired of just asking for a kilo of "those" king prawns?

Well next time you head down to your local seafood supplier, you could just be buying your very own shrimp. I was just reading through Food Detective in today's Weekend Australian, only to find out that the Australian Marine Conservation Society is running an eBay auction to name a new species of shrimp. You can read about it on the AMCS website here. Of course all profits from the auction go towards marine conservation.

When I checked today, bidding on eBay was up to $3,050.00. So if you win the $20 million lotto tonight, make sure you throw in a generous bid! You've got to admit it's a very cool looking shrimp.
