What is the law on eating conch in FL? Is it still served in restaurants there? How much does it cost? I remember eating conch fritters back in the day! They were delish.

If you are eating FL conch it is illegal, all conch sold is supposed to be imported, Bahamas, Mexico or somewhere south. So the eating is not illegal just the source. Also, can't have the shells when boarded by Fish and Game as they are illegal to take out of Fl waters.
