National Abalone Levy ballot

With declining wild resources we have to make more money from every abalone we catch!

Just as we are investing in trying to stop the decline in the natural resources that our industry depends upon, we need to invest in our other greatest assets – our customers and our consumers!  We need to educate them about why they need to pay a premium for our beautiful, and increasingly rare, Australian wild-caught abalone.
