Tasmanian Abalone is known by the scientific name of Haliotis ruber, and that's about enough of that! The image above comes from Tasmanian Wild Seafood, and lets face it, that's the way most of us relate to abalone.
The rocky point to the north of The Gardens House has abalone and crayfish and you can get to them by the most modest form of skindiving. A couple of words of caution:
- check with the Dept of Primary Industries and Water regarding licenses and catch limits
- once out on the point, we are talking open water.
