“Conch Gone” Video Launch

"Conch Gone" Music Video Release

Under the direction of Lavado Stubbs from Conchboy Films and a superstar line up of Bahamian artists, Bahamas National Trust launched their “Conch Gone” music video in support of the Conchservation Campaign.  This campaign seeks to promote a sustainable conch fishery and was born from the concerns of fishermen and scientists who noticed that previously Conch beds were dramatically declining throughout The Bahamas. In Florida, conch harvesting was banned more than a quarter century ago and the population has still not recovered. The Conchservation Campaign aims to prevent this from happening in The Bahamas!
