Greenlip abalone

Abalone

Abalone is a reef dwelling marine snail with over 18 different species found in Australian waters but primarily Greenlip, Blacklip and Brownlip are commercially fished.

 

Western Australia has one of the last remaining wild-stock sustainable fisheries, with our export grade Greenlip meat caught off the Esperance coast.

 

Cultured abalone is a sophisticated business with farms spread across our southern coastline from Bremer Bay (WA), Kangaroo Island (S.Aust) and Bicheno (TAS) all producing premium quality abalone.

 

Yield of abalone meat is 35% of total weight
