Note(s): The queen conch, Strombus gigas, is one of the most valuable fisheries species throughout the Caribbean, however, the populations have been declining for several decades. Research focused on aquaculture, restocking, and transplanting techniques is being conducted to help replenish wild conch populations. A 38 week experiment to determine the influence of diet and substrate on queen conch growth and survival began at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution, Ft. Pierce, Florida in December 2003.
