Massive spawning group of longnose gars (Lepisosteus osseus) in northwest Ohio. Article by Toledo Blade on longnose gars and other fishes observed spawning this season located HERE.
In anticipation of my upcoming trip to Villahermosa (Tabasco state, Mexico), here is a great video put together by colleagues at the tropical gar aquaculture farm (Otot-Ibam) highlighting their gar production. Great shots/sequences of gar development and the culture process. I’ll be presenting at the 4th International Meeting on Lepisosteid Research in mid-June, and we’ll get to tour the farm as well as participate in workshops.
