Project I: Introduction of the warm-water abalone species Haliotis diversicolor supertexta and H. fulgens for culture assessment in Hawaii

  1.   Document the review process for import permit applications, and prepare scientific guidelines for preparation and submission of permit applications. These guidelines will be published as an extension fact sheet.
  2.  
  3.   Conduct a literature search, and prepare a permit application to import Haliotis diversicolor supertexta and H. fulgens. Identify appropriate quarantine facilities and sources of abalone seed. The importation process, quarantine requirements, and sources of abalone seed will be published as an extension fact sheet.
  4.  
  5.   Import abalone species, and conduct grow-out trials at two commercial farms in Hawaii. Results of the grow-out trials will be disseminated in a brochure detailing results and recommendations for abalone culture in Hawaii. If sufficient interest exists, a workshop will be presented to the aquaculture community
