“These attitudes are shifting, but there’s plenty of work to do,” said David, who is an assistant professor of biological sciences at Nicholls State University in Louisiana.
While understanding of gar’s scientific and recreational value is increasing, gar still face the harmful effects of old beliefs and new challenges.Read More
