Frank Godwin Is Really into Gator Aid—but Not for Preppies
Godwin's experimental program, run in cooperation with the University of Florida, got a big boost with the 1980 lifting of the seven-year federal ban on marketing alligator meat. (The restrictions on hides already had been relaxed.) The following year, once the critters were judged no longer threatened by extinction, Florida recorded sales of 60,000 pounds of gator meat—at $5 per pound wholesale—to 120 licensed restaurants. Alligator reminds gourmets variously of chicken, lobster or veal "with a little more elasticity," says Godwin, and he plans to see they have plenty of it. Though he has no timetable, Godwin wants to expand his herd to 10,000. Their commercially raised, superior hides should bring a minimum of $28 a foot—or some $400 per gator, counting the meat. "And that," says Godwin with a grin, "means megabucks."
