  HBOI | Feature | Queen Conch Aquaculture Breakthrough
These animals are part of a recently initiated HBOI conch research project aimed at designing methods leading to commercial cultivation of alternative species to the queen conch, a popular fisheries species that has been the subject of mariculture efforts since wild populations began to decline in the 1970s.
And it is a particularly important research plateau to reach in the case of the queen conch, because eggs and larvae spawned in one geographical location very often are the animals that ultimately recruit (settle) to new locations, sometimes a hundred or more miles away.
It is known that overfishing of adult conch in a location that serves as a larval source pool may have negative implications for recruitment success within larger and/or more distant settlement locations.
