AAA Editor Notes
Caicos Conch Farm is on the n.e. tip of the island at Leeward. Guided 30-minute tours educate visitors about the queen conch (pronounced konk), which is raised here for food and pearl production. The 10-acre (4-hectare) working farm includes a hatchery, nursery ponds, sea pens and a processing facility. Two “trained” conches are introduced during the tour. A fish hatchery houses grouper, pompano, cobia and snapper.
Guided tours are available.
