Alligator Gar Management
Alligator Gar

The AGFC Fisheries Division has devoted a special team of biologists to study and promote the alligator gar and its potential as a trophy sportfishery. They have compiled a management plan that identifies key steps in the continued success of this prehistoric throwback.

Researching alligator gar requires much more hands-on effort than many species, simply because of the rarity of large specimens throughout the gar’s traditional range. Watch a video highlighting some of the research work AGFC biologists employ to keep tabs on this species.
