To hold a conch is to hold the history of the sea and some of it's most ancient sounds
To "Conch" Someone is to Honor them by blowing the Conch in their Tribute or Remembrance

The first thing you must have to make great Seashell horns trophy gifts are great shells
No one has conch shells like we do in all of America
We import all of our Conch shells from countries where they police their resource to where it is sustainable and is never overfished
So our cost is higher but the Conch as a species is sustained and  will be for many years to come.
Conch are only overfished in some places and we do not import from those countries at all
In fact the Federal Department Fish and Wildlife does quite a good job prohibiting import to this country of Conch from any country
That is in fact overfishing their resource. So in the end it is better for everyone who loves shells and of course the conch themselves !
