Harvesting/Eating the "other conchs"? - Crown Conch, Horse Conch, etc..

Florida Diving - www.scubaboard.com
Hi All,

I'm having the craving for some fresh cracked conch... I know the queen conch is protected, but it seems the other conchs like the crown conch, horse conch, Whelks, fighting conch, etc are not regulated/protected... Yeah I know the first three are technically not conchs since not in the "Strombus" family

Anyway was curious if anyone can chime in on the table quality of these "other conchs" - I have a feeling it will take quite a load to get a decent quantity of meat or some ceviche, salad or fritters, but think I can spare an afternoon ;-) So any tips on collecting & preparing - ie which ones taste better, how to prepare them, do they require time with the tenderizer/mallet, etc

Thanks!,

Bob
