Some 80 onshore ponds, where aeration systems keep the water oxygenated, are the nursery home of the baby conchs which are fed a special conch feed by some 20 staff at the farm.
Conch World has 200 offshore pens which hold initially the 1 year olds (6 cm size). After 2 1/2 years in the pens or at 3 to 4 years old, the conch can be harvested.
Sally needs little coaxing to come out of her shell. Note the “foot” which is strong and powerful.
Make sure to visit Conch World when you visit our island of Providenciales. Entry fee is only $10.00 per person and I think it is well worth it. You won’t have another opportunity anywhere in the world as this commercial farm is the only one.
See you there!
