BIOLOGY FACTORS

In this section we provide some information on abalone biology and report on some natural issues that can affect the animal. Three natural challenges currently facing the fishery are Centro, algal blooms (biotoxins) and marine heatwaves.

The Tasmanian Abalone Council is deeply involved in ensuring the continuing health and sustainability of the fishery and works closely with the Department (NRE) to ensure the continuing sustainability of the industry.
