[QUOTE=Special K III;12138103]it must take years and years to build up the population. I agree with this statement from the article...

The Sunshine State once had its own healthy population of conchs. But by the 1980s, overfishing had nearly wiped them out. The U.S. outlawed taking conch, yet three decades later they have yet to recover, providing a grim example to Bahamians if they wait too long[/QUOTE

while i I would generally agree with you the FL conch habitat is 1/100th of the conch habitat in the Bahamas
