    Default Warm Water Lobsters

    MOST OF THESE PICTURES ARE COURTESY OF "MUPITARA" BIG DADDY in English on one of his fishing adventures to the Miskito Keys of the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua





    THES GUY'S ARE "FREE DIVING" IN SHALLOW WATER.
    This free diving is much less hazzardous than what goes on in off shore deeper waters.




    Mupitara has the look of a kid with a new toy don't he? The fishing is just great here, a little out of the way, little out of the way hell, it is quite remote.



    Typical "Fish Camp" built up on stilts in the shallows of the Keys, this is where the fishermen and sometimes their "Guests" sleep, cook and eat, while there.



    This is where the "Blackened Grouper" in those fancy resturants starts...Fresh caught and handled product...



    This a view of the mangrove marches to the Miskito Keys

    Conch.

    When I visited Corn Islands I searched out for some raw fresh Conch. Everyone seems to think its ilegal to take? Howevere I saw dozens of the shells with holes in them around Brigs Bay.

    Default The Caribbean Queen Conch

    The Caribbean Queen Conch (Gigis Strombus) is a protected species.

    Meaning there are times, prohibited to capture, molest, or kill.

    They have a commerical value and market here, but these aquatic animals have their habitat and are not found just everywhere...

    Perhaps the shells you found were discarded there...

    Default Open Waters

    These are fantastic pictures....so what happens in the deeper waters? Sharks? * Or don't I want to know? *

    Has anyone seen the movie, Open Waters? *OMG...watch it if you haven't!

    Also, hate to tell you but Maine Lobsters are the best for eating IMO * [/u]

    Default Hey John.

    Hey John,

    Exactly what are the laws regarding conch? Are there really any laws against taking conch for personal consumption? I heard that they are allowed to be taken commercially during the lobster closed season.

    The Lobster Divers don't mess with them much while targeting the lobsters, a few for friends and family is about all.

    Last year they did permit the Conch to be taken during the closed lobster season, to give the men some income, I have not heard if it will be done this way again this year when it closes again at the end of this month.

    Oh yea, the season for commerical taking of the conch will be during the closed season for Lobesters this year again, April, May, and June.

    the rest of the year it is for local cunsumption only.
