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.

Hatchery reared juvenile greenlip abalone are placed on our custom built reefs in the pristine waters of Flinders Bay. Our leases are situated in areas where wild abalone is in abundance. Nature (with a little help from our divers) does the rest to provide a premium product.
Green Lip Abalone
Our ranched abalone is a totally natural, 'wild-harvested,' premium product. The abalone is grown in its natural habitat, the ocean. It feeds on seaweed as do wild abalone.

Peter Kuruvita is bringing a taste of Margaret River to Noosa. .....
The West Australian, Chef champions local produce in series
Season two of Peter Kuruvita’s Coastal Kitchen premiers on SBS on Thursday, featuring the Margaret River region across the six-part series.
The Noosa-based award-winning chef and restaurateur spent a month in the region, sampling food and wine, and meeting with farmers and producers.
He said his highlights were diving for abalone with Ocean Grown Abalone off the coast of Augusta, and meeting local Aboriginals to hear their stories.
“Everyone I bumped into was a great character and had an amazing story to tell,” he said.
“The thing that got me going was the passion and fire in everyone I met.”
Kuruvita said championing Margaret River’s produce was not only important for tourism, but for residents.
