Details

Maximum size: about 31 cm. Appearance: Western Atlantic, from the United States to Brazil, entire Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. This shell is often eaten in the Caribbean countries. Nowadays the lip must be 15 mm thick before they can be harvested in certain countries. It is the only species in the family that is on the Cites list and may therefore not be traded. Linnaeus has introduced 2 names for this species. He used the name Strombus lucifer for the young specimens and is therefore synonymous with gigas.
