Caicos Conch Farm


Generations have grown up on the islands with a love of seafood and of the ocean. The Caicos Conch Farm is the only commercial conch farm in the world and can be visited in the Leeward Settlement on Providenciales.

It was founded by a retired U.S. Navy Officer, Chuck Hesse, in 1984. He pioneered methods to raise and cultivate conch which helped relieve pressure on the wild stocks that had been overfishing. The farm raises Queen Conch, which is the most common species eaten on the islands.
