Looks like it is compost for Vegans.

Shocked Holy crow!
"The fish parts used can also contain heavy metals and toxins that the fish absorbed during its life time."

I totally forgot about that and occasionally use Neptune on my starts. Guess it'll be for perennials only from now on. I can easily use compost for their food and blend my own seaweed for transplanting.

My eggshells are from local free range hens only so I feel fine using them.

THAT is a fabulous article and great links that I'm heading back to finish reading right now.
thanks hass55!

YIKES! I will get much more serious about my compost pile after reading this. We have our own hormone/antibiotic-free horse manure and egg shells, kitchen scraps, fireplace ash, and coffee grounds -- all from 2 families living on the property. We should have the richest, safest compost on the planet (if I only had more hours in the day to work it, properly).  Embarassed Sad Okay, a better composting system is now high on the to-do list.
