That looks like it was a live shell. I was under the impression live shells are off limits? Just asking.
Are you going to eat it ? ? ?Only the queen conch.....all others im allowed 15 total a day. They are thinking of giving some protection to these horse conchs....they are the state shell !!
Thats riddiculaus... they allow 15 a day ? ? ?Only the queen conch.....all others im allowed 15 total a day. They are thinking of giving some protection to these horse conchs....they are the state shell !!
For its shell ? ? ?
Bart i know you fish for a living... so its hard for me... i grew up in the water fishing and shelling my whole youth was spent doing this.For its shell ? ? ?
Aww man... come on brother... things that tuff / bad down there ?
It was written. Likely with a background about what's going on with the results of prior regulation.Thats riddiculaus... they allow 15 a day ? ? ?
Who the f--- wrote that law / limit ? ? ?
40 to 160 ? ? ? sheesh i have a bunch laying around outside...hehJust our way of life down here.....and all of it by the laws. If you could go out and dive up shells 15 at a time for 40-160$ each. You would....its one of the greatest past times of islanders. There are so few of us doing this that no one else even knows the habits, mating season, moon phases and favorable tides, and even what they feed on. I'm a true expert on there life cycles and habits.....I let go 5 for every one I take, I've never wasted the animals, and I take only the best most mature specimans. Large chipped specimans are left to breed. They are not near extinction, and are only one in a large number of shells I harvest. Milk conch are smaller more tender versions of the queen conch and are a delicacy. I eat every cowerie I can catch because they taste so great. And I pick up all sorts of "sheds" from all species. So many people just don't know.....oh well...others ignorance of the situation or even the laws does not concern me !! Im doing what I do and am obeying the laws !! There are so few of us doing this that very few people know the laws or condition of the fishery because they just don't do shells like this !!
