Join Brad Buckley manager of the Abalone Farm for an insider’s look at the world of abalone aquaculture. The Abalone Farm, located on a bluff top above the Pacific Ocean six miles north of Cayucos, California produces approximately 50 percent of the abalone served in restaurants and sold in fresh fish shops around America. From seed to market is a patient four-year process, which partly explains why abalone is often sold by the ounce.
