      [EXCERPT: ARS's newest improved catfish, called NWAC103, first began
      hitting the market in late 2002. Today, about 15 percent of the
      catfish being raised are probably NWAC103. Consumers won't notice
      anything different, but NWAC103 catfish eat 10 percent more feed and
      grow 10 percent faster than other commercially farmed channel
      catfish--a great benefit to fish farmers.]
