Using fishes to ensure quality of drinking water

Inspired through BoingBoing.
In Switzerland, fishes are still used to check the quality of drinking water. When water is contaminated with something that kills the fish, an automatic alarm is triggered. Pretty neat usage - does this comply as "animal testing"? (Image Source).
Edit 20-Sep-2006: Added Trackback to a new BoingBoing.

LOL; that is a very nice idea; wouldn't it be great if the boxes were recycled ones? I don't really like my pizzas come in boxes, because they always taste like the box...
