While up to 90% of Australia’s abalone is harvested in the wild, the farmed sector is growing quickly, largely driven by the Chinese market which prizes abalone for its health benefits.


Jade Lobster growers have developed a high-quality supply, good texture, good flavour and consistent size, making the product appealing to both domestic and export markets.

A move to farmed abalone has reduced the pressure on global wild abalone stocks, ensuring long-term sustainability for both wild and farmed species.

The selection of the site was pure serendipity. One of the diver's had bought some land so that he could get access to some very well protected bays for diving for abalone. When the idea for an abalone farm was formed the site was already available. The abalone population was strong; the bay protected the farm from the swells of the Great Southern Ocean and the site remote from human habitation.

Our species is a Hybrid of two species, a cross between Green Lip and Black Lip abalone. We named it Green Tiger because it has a green shell and tiger stripe feature on the foot. It has natural pearl white flesh colour, sweet subtle flavour and succulent texture.

Green Tiger, the combination of the two best-known species in Australia provides you with a unique dining experience.

Growing abalone is a slow process as each abalone takes at least 3 years to grow to commercial size. Our Green Tiger demand a particular environment but perform well at the Southern Ocean Mariculture land based operation as our seawater temperature profile is just right for them. We produce our abalone from stock bred on farm.
