The future of the conch

Now online: Merel’s final episode for the Bonairean television series Trese Karko Bek (bring our conch back). What will the future of the conch look like? Much has changed in the past years, and Bonaire has made serious efforts to restore the population of queen conch. As a result, the number of conch is increasing, but it will be a long time before people can start fishing for conch again in a sustainable way. Many people from the Bonairean community, including fishermen, ex-poachers and park rangers, share their views on the project. What do you think should be the future policy?
