Grown and ‘hand-plucked’ from a natural, safe and sustainable habitat.
We have developed the world’s first commercial greenlip abalone sea ranching facility. We build our own artificial abalone reefs (called abitats) on our leases in the pristine waters of Flinders Bay. We place hatchery reared juvenile abalone on them – then let nature (with a little help from our divers) do the rest to produce this marine delicacy. A totally natural, ‘wild-harvest’ product. Because we have some control of the process we can harvest to market demand to whatever size the market requires. We call this aquaculture technique sea ranching.

The Bull.com.au; Winners in the dining boom
Stories about the so-called “dining boom” mostly focus on Australia’s potential to export more fruit, vegetables and meat to Asia. Exporting seafood to emerging markets gets less attention from stockmarket investors, even though fish is a key part of Asian diets.
