Abalones are members of a large class (Gastropoda) of molluscs having one-piece shells. They belong to the family Haliotidae and the genus Haliotis, which means sea ear, referring to the flattened shape of the shell. Abalone shells are rounded or oval with a large dome towards one end.
Abalone's meaning is one of solace, a connection to the ocean, the cycle of life, protection, and ancient travel.
Why abalones are pricey: Abalone Has To Be Harvested By Hand. Unlike conventional seafood such as fish and prawns, abalone cannot be obtained from the cast of a net. Therefore, the cost-to-yield ratio is very low.
