The Alabama shad (Alosa alabamae) is a species of clupeid fish endemic to the United States where it breeds in medium to large flowing rivers from the Mississippi River drainage to the Suwannee River, Florida, as well as some Gulf coast drainages.

Alabama shad (Alosa alabamae), classified as a Species of Concern by the National Marine Fisheries Service. The Alabama shad (Alosa alabamae) is an anadromous species native to the northern Gulf of Mexico drainages (1).

Historically, these shad ranged from the Ouachita River, Arkansas, to the Suwannee River, Florida (2, 3). Though the Alabama shad was once common across its range, within the past few decades, its numbers have dwindled (4).

Along the coast of the Florida Panhandle, the species has been replaced by the endangered Alabama shad. American shad were introduced into the Sacramento and Columbia Rivers in the Pacific Northwest in the late ’s, and in the population of shad.

In this study, I estimated the population size of migrating Alabama shad below Jim Woodruff Lock and Dam (JWLD) in the Apalachicola River located in the central panhandle of Northwest Florida using mark recapture and relative abundance techniques.

The number of marked fish was adjusted for tag loss, emigration and mortality. The population size of migrating Alabama shad near JWLD was estimated.

The best hope for survival of Alabama's namesake shad now lies in Florida's Apalachicola River, where the fish are able to migrate about miles upriver before hitting a dam.

The Alabama shad spawns (lays its eggs) in rivers but spends some part of its life living in the ocean. It is a silvery-green fish that measures about 20 inches (51 centimeters) in adulthood.

Females are larger than males. It has a distinctive pointed snout with a lower jaw jutting out from inside. Laurence, G. C., and R. Yerger. Life history studies of the Alabama shad, Alosa alabamae, in the Apalachicola River, Florida.

The Alabama shad, Alosa alabamae, is an anadromous species that is in decline and has seen extirpations from impoundments as well as decreased water quality.

Alabama shad live in the Gulf of Mexico and ascend Northern Gulf of Mexico Drainages to reproduce early in the year (January-May). The juveniles spend the majority of the year in these freshwater systems before emigrating out to the Gulf. spawning habitat for the federally endangered Gulf sturgeon and Alabama shad as well as restoration plan was developed for THSF by the Northwest Florida Water Management (NWFWMD) and the Florida Forest Service (NWFWMD ) which described and prioritized all Identification and biology of Nonnative Plants in-Florida's Natural Areas.

The Alabama shad (Alosa alabamae) is found in Alabama in the river systems of the southern half of the is listed as a Species of Special Concern by the National Marine Fishes Service because many of its inland spawning routes have been blocked by high-lift locks and dams.
