Two new Industries here in Florida.


First is Jack Fruit Growing. There is a market for Ethnic Fruit and Vegetable.

Second is Gator Hunting.

Back about 1970 My father was fined for selling merchandise made from Gator Hide. Of course Gator were on the endangered Species List at that time. Today Gator are every where and need thinned. 20 years ago I had the FWC Gator Trapper's license and was on a rotation with other Licensee. The FWC issue a permit for us to remove and relocate the Gator to a Gator Farm. The Gator Farm was how we got paid just like today. However Between Billy the Exterminator and Swamp Boys etc, Nuance wildlife trapping has become a very competitive business.

Btw 2030 experts are predicting a global food shortage because of population expansion. Who knows what food will be popular then.
