We collaborate daily with our partners in Naguabo, Puerto Rico. Conservación ConCiencia and the Naguabo Fishing Association are instrumental to the success of the island's first community-led conch hatchery for restoration.
We worked with Green Island Blue Ocean (Catherine Booker) to develop the FAU Mobile Lab and this project has since rolled into a partnership with BNT to operate the lab with the goal of restocking queen conch in BNT’s managed Moriah Harbor Cay National Park in Great Exuma. This project’s funding is from the Richard Schneider Trust. In Grand Bahama, we are working with BNT on several objectives, including diversified livelihoods for fishermen, teaching ocean conch ranching skills, and communicating the queen conch lifecycle.
The Curaçao Hatchery, located at the Curaçao Sea Aquarium, has been in operation since 2020. The Queen Conch Lab provides scientific advice and training for the team that operates a medium-size hatchery. With a captive population of adult queen conch the hatchery has a steady supply of conch eggs and continues to show success in growing conch juveniles for restoration and sustainable seafood purposes.
