Florida Alligator Marketing and Education Committee (F.A.M.E.)

The duties of the Florida Alligator Marketing and Education Advisory Committee are to identify marketing and educational projects that will inform, educate and promote alligator meat, leather and other by-products to the general public and commercial purchasers and to consult with and advise the Commissioner of Agriculture and the Director of the Division of Marketing and Development regarding the expenditure of funds to accomplish these goals.  These marketing and educational projects are to communicate: (1) the beauty, value and unique nature of American alligator leather items, (2) the flavor, nutritional quality, wholesomeness and gourmet allure of American alligator meat products, (3) the American alligator as a renewable resource, (4) the purchase of an American alligator product as an investment in the sustainable use of the alligator and its habitat, and (5) that commercial activities provide revenues to support alligator management and research programs and provide revenues to private landowners that maintain wetland ecosystems.
