plenty of conch in the VI, i have a few hotspots in St Croix i like to dive. Big ones too. There are literally piles of shells in the sea grape where the local Rastas camp and feed on 'em. Just a real popular animal to eat, as we all strive to live on what is around us in the water! I heard fish is really good, too...hehehehe

Fritters

Conch Fritters

8 ounces all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 eggs
3 egg whites
1/4 cup milk
2 ounces red pepper, finely diced
2 ounces green pepper, finely diced
2 ounces yellow pepper, finely diced
2 ounces red onion, finely diced
2 ounces cilantro, leaves chopped
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 pound conch meat, diced small
Peanut oil, for frying

Sift together flour and cornstarch. In a large mixing bowl whip together eggs, egg whites, and milk. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Season with salt and white pepper.

Heat a deep pot halfway filled with peanut oil to 350 degrees F. Using a small scoop (1 ounce) place batter in oil and fry until golden brown. Roll often to ensure golden all around.

Remove from oil and place on paper towel to drain excess oil. Serve with favorite sauce.

This thread is a bit dated. The Bahamians have "refined" their fishing regs and cruisers are now allowed to take conch. I forget how many at a time but think it's six. Pictures were taken in March this year.

Sea Otters? Maybe in Northern California.

I used to dive So Cal in the 70's and never saw any. Just lots of sport divers taking lots more abalone.

On a recent trip to Catalina my wife and I walked out to the diving area in front of the casino. There were 300 divers there!! When I used to dive it, 10 was a lot.

Scungilli? Why hide it with batter? Just steam and serve with lemon, garlic and butter. Delicious.

The best way to eat Conch is to beat it with heavy hammer on rough concrete between two tea towles. Marinate in lemon an garlic and place on a ceader plank in fornt of a charcoal fire on the beach. Cook till Med rare......
Then toss the Conch and eat the plank!
