The Tasmanian Abalone fishery has been a great success story for the state and worldwide consumers of the much sought after shellfish.
The size and quality of Tasmanias Abalone is superb by any standard and is eagerly sought by overseas diners.
Succesful local industry operated by local people is what all Australians should be proud of.Employment opportunity and export is great for everybody.
Divers risk their lives for a harvest amongst an increasing population of Great White Sharks. Local processsing and now value adding with Candy Abalone that are fetching well over a thousand dollars a kilo.
A sustainable Abalone fishery is a very tricky act everywhere so lets see Tasmania benefit from others experience.
