With the Queen Conch season ending early, will Horse Conch be substituted? The shells are very different and I don't think I have ever eaten Horse Conch (at least I wasn't told). A little research tells me the meat of the Horse is orange'ish, a lot tougher and stronger tasting, but still eatable after you pound the he** out of it.

Horse conch is NOT part of the conch season and can be caught and eaten all year round. Also, the last day to catch and sell conch was April 24th. If any restaurants or shops have conch in stock, they are allowed to sell the conch until May 12, 2012. So you still have a chance to eat it...

That's great news Marty - we will be there 5-4 to 5-13 - sounds like there is a chance we might get to have some conch!
