Which Pastes Exactly???

Advanced apologies to the seasoned bloggers, as this message is primarily directed towards Matthew and Neil!

The first batch of GC-MS (Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry) data from my iris and ilia samples has recently just returned some potentially interesting results which adequately support the SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) data that I have previously obtained. In order to try and better understand the obtained results however, I wonder if I could please enquire about the 7 types of Shrimp pastes which were used in the July 2009 bait tests at Fermyn Woods? It is obvious from Matthews’ Christmas post last year (Christmas Day, somewhere in the Purple Empire) which paste gave the best results, however, in order to ascertain any specifics about the "Pantainorasingh" paste, I would first need to know which other pastes were used in the tests?

From initial reading, such as Cha etal (1995):

and Lung-Shih etal (2003):

Both papers (amongst many, many others) giving some rather interesting data, but without the paste specifics used in the initial baiting tests, it is very difficult to properly interpret the results. I consequently very much look forward to reading your paste specifics here online.
