Summary

Abalone industry thrives in Australia. Australia, whose abalone production has risen from less than 80 to about 8000 in just over 10 years, now produces about one third of the world's abalone catch. Australia's catch, taken from seas off the southern part of the mainland and off the island State of Tasmania, is worth about $A5,000,000 a year. Most is taken by independant divers operating from small coastal towns. The industry went through a boom in the mid-1960s but has now stabilised.--Information on labels on reverse.
