I was wrong about the conch, please do not tell my wife i admitted this, email
reply below from the person in charge!
I refer to your e-mail of 7th January, 2014 on the above.
Please firstly be advised that you are permitted to harvest conch from the shore without a sportsfishing permit
If however you decide to fish
from a fishing
vessel that is not owned by a citizen of The Bahamas
, i.e., (a rental), you must first obtain a sportsfishing permit
at a Bahamian port of entry before engaging in any fishing
in The Bahamas
. Upon receipt of the sportsfishing permit, your allowable daily quota is not more than 6 conch on the fishing vessel at any one time.
Please note that if you decide to fish
from a Bahamian owned vessel, (a rental), your allowable daily quota is not more than 250 pounds of marine
resources including conch on the fishing vessel at any one time. The Bahamian fishing vessel is not required to have a sportsfishing permit.
Wishing you a pleasant visit to The Bahamas.
