Abalone relocation makes way for Ocean Reef Marina development

Up to 10 tonnes of adult breeding Roe's abalone will find new homes along Perth's coast as part of a translocation project to protect the future sustainability of the fishery ahead of the Ocean Reef Marina development.

The project to move 100,000 Roe's abalone from the area around the Ocean Reef Marina development site has already seen about 68,000 abalone relocated to other reef platforms within the Marmion Marine Park.
