Conch/Whelk Season Reminder
The Department of Environment is reminding the public
of the parameters for the conch and
whelk season, which begins simultaneously on 1 November
and closes on 30 April.
The catch limits for each are:
♦ 5 conch per person or 10 conch per boat, whichever is less;
♦ Two-and-a-half gallons whelk in the shell or two-and-a-half pounds
(processed) taken from Cayman waters in any one day.
It is also important to note that purchase restrictions state no one may purchase
or receive more than five
conch from Cayman waters in any one day.
