The Arecibo Galaxy Environment Survey is a blind neutral hydrogen survey using the ALFA multibeam receiver at Arecibo Observatory to reach unprecedented sensitivities in a number of selected fields in the local Universe. When completed the survey will cover 200 square degrees out to a distance of at least 270 Mpc. If a population of gas-rich dark galaxies exists, then this survey is in a prime position to uncover that population.
So far 20 square degrees have been covered in the regions of Abell 1367, the Virgo Cluster, the NGC 7332/9 galaxy pair and the isolated galaxy NGC 1156. Over 200 sources have been found, including a number that have no obvious optical counterparts. We discuss here the potential of AGES for uncovering more such objects and the characteristics of the dark sources identified to date.
