This is completely off-topic, but I can use some help.
Over on my sailing blog, Sail Full Tilt, (one of five blogs that I maintain; or more accurately four, if you consider the Joe2006blog.com blog over and done with) there's a little mystery.
It seems that a warm-water crustacean has invaded Long Island Sound. The last two times my wife and I were at the beach, we found what appears to be Queen Conch (Strombus gigas) shells. These animals are typically found in the Caribbean, the Bahamas, Florida, and Bermuda. Beyond that, they don't travel much.
Except that they do, apparently. Somehow they managed to wash up on the shore in Milford. I don't know why.
If you or someone you know is a marine expert, like a biologist, I'd really like to hear from them.
