on  Agri-business by a vote of 15 to 0.

This bill designates the paddlefish as the official state
aquatic animal and the catfish as the official state fish.

FISCAL NOTE:  No impact on state funds.

the paddlefish, indigenous exclusively to the Missouri River
Valley, should be designated the state aquatic animal. The same

aquaculture production nationally, should be the state fish.

OPPONENTS:  There was no opposition voiced to the committee.
