Fish oil firm and reincarnated Internet startup Zapata said today that it will market Amazon.com products on its future Web site in return for referral fees.

Under the deal, Amazon will pay Zapata's Zap.com subsidiary fees ranging from 5 to 15 percent of the sale price on more than 1.1 million book titles, CDs and videos, Zapata said.

The announcement sent Zapata's shares up 2.625, to 14.75 today.
