Freshwater Fish

Alligator Gar (Atractosteus spatula) reproduce in the spring and the eggs are deposited into shallow water. Found in slow sluggish water in the Gulf of Mexico and southwestern rivers. Eat catfish and waterfowl and are seen as a freshwater predator. 300 pound gars have been found, they are not fished with hooks, and while they live in slow water, they spawn in running water.
