Oregon's red abalone (Haliotis rufescens) have been the target of a recreational trophy fishery since the 1950s, but following a perfect storm of negative environmental conditions, the fishery was closed in 2018 due to population concerns. Acquiring new information about red abalone biology and habitat, history of the fishery in Oregon and genetic information, allows researchers and managers to work towards a conservation and fishery management plan. ODFW and Oregon Sea Grant have partnered to collaborate with university researchers, agency staff, and fishery participants to determine a framework for an environmentally conscious conservation and management plan for red abalone in Oregon.
