Hey everyone,

There have been a couple of posts the last week or so regarding gar in the
aquarium trade. Does anyone know if most of the gar that are for sale in
pet stores and elsewhere are captive bred, or are they collected from the
wild? If they are collected from the wild, is that legal? Can this be
done under a commercial fishing license?

Any info is appreciated.
