Response to Really? A quarter of the world supply?
... you may need to differentiate wild from farmed abalone. The Tasmanian harvest is estimated to be more than 25% of world WILD abalone production and it is predominantly the blacklip (Haliotis rubra) and greenlip (Haliotis laevigata) varieties. I adore Tasmanian produce!
