The article reveals the plan of Vietnam-based Agfish to make biofuel from catfish. The Vietnamese government has approved Agfish's application to build a factory in the southern Mekong delta in the province of An Giang to produce biodiesel. When production is up and running, the fuel could be used to run pumps at the company's fish ponds. Rising fuel costs have sparked interest in biofuels as an alternative energy source.
