My friends over at Conch Salad TV picked up this mini-documentary about over-fishing of the conch in the Bahamas. Now I’ve never actually eaten conch – and it’s not really on my list either – but we do have several conch shells that we picked up along our travels in the Caribbean. As with many other fisheries in the world – the conch have become threatened by over-fishing. It’s only 15 minutes or so, so pour yourself  a margarita and think about what you can do to help

The queen conch has been an abundant food source for the people of the Caribbean for centuries, but growing demand for this seafood delicacy is causing a dramatic and concerning depletion of the fishery throughout the region.

We’re working to help stop the decline of queen conch populations in the Bahamas by pursuing science and outreach initiatives critical to the development of a successful, sustainable, and well-managed fishery.
