Correlation Between Queen Conch Diffusion Coefficients and Conservation Efforts

Northern Kentucky University

Abstract

Overexploitation of the Queen Conch is a major problem throughout the Caribbean. We have explored the different factors effecting population both within a reserve and outside of it, in an attempt to allow not only the conch population to flourish but also for fishermen to maintain satisfactory fishing yields. Our research primarily explored the effect that the diffusion coefficient had on conservation efforts.
