Chuck, do I detect a slight sense of irony in your comment? In any case, I agree--I've been amazed at the variety of sources, in nature and elsewhere, for potential materials.

I agree Elizabeth--I'm continually impressed at the resources, and the variety of same, available in nature for materials and construction techniques.

A fascinating article, Ann. It never fails to impress me the lengths researchers will go as well as the creativity they use to find sources in nature for new materials and energy sources. It also shows just what an impressive force nature is and how complex it can be for humans to try to recreate natural materials, even with great ingenuity.

Ann, very interesting and a different topic. I think such topics apart from the normal one will be a great interest for most of our community members.

Fishilk is a good start!  But, is it vegan friendly?  That is a fast growing market today.

I love this kind of stuff.  The diversity of life is amazing.  Maybe "Fishilk" or "Pescafiber" would make it more palatable for consumers?

Ann, my point is that the bacteria need to feed on someting and the specific needs will dwtermine exactly what that feedstock winds up being. As with most discoveries, the moving from a laboratory operation into a production environment is the bigger part of the task. Sometimes the adaptation to production winds up being the show-stopper.
