Anyone for conch ceviche, conch fritters or even conch soup … these are always a must to any Caye Caulker menu and the fact that Conch came into season today, makes it almost 100% certain that villagers will be sampling either one of these today!!

For local fisherman the season opened yesterday Monday 1st October and anyone who knows his game was out from sunrise this morning, making much use of the day!!  Before many of you had even opened your eyes boat loads of conch were making their way back to the Caye to be carefully cleaned and carried to their final destination, most likely our mouths!!

For anyone that is interested in more of how locals dive for conch and clean it … look at our video with Captain Jahlee from last year – click here.
