Alligator Gar Technical Committee

The Alligator Gar Technical Committee consists of multiple state agencies, universities, and nations dedicated to furthering the conservation, research, and management of alligator gar through collaboration and information sharing. One of the primary efforts of the technical committee is improving our knowledge and understanding of alligator gar and their status. New information is shared through annual meetings of the technical committee and it is our hope that this website will assist in these efforts by providing a conduit for communication and a repository of information about alligator gar.

The technical committee holds annual meetings to provide a collaborative and informational network of fisheries professionals interested in the conservation and management of alligator gar. The goal of this group will be to facilitate fisheries managers and researchers in efforts to monitor and manage all aspects of alligator gar. Anticipated actions include, but are not limited to, conducting population assessments, serving as an information repository, conducting age and growth studies, habitat and movement studies, defining population genetics and developing culture and stocking needs as deemed necessary to develop a life history for the species, determine their status range wide, and to promote coordinated conservation, research, and management across their natural range.

This website is will be revised as new information is gathered and can be uploaded. Check back often for updates. Please contact Solomon David (solomonrdavid@gmail.com) with questions, comments, or any contributions you would like to add regarding this site.
