World-First Local Abalone Farm Capitalises on Chinese New Year

Chinatowns the world over will come alive this Friday for Chinese new year, with highly prized abalone one of the delicacies that will be enjoyed by a lucky few during the festivities.

West Australian producer Ocean Grown Abalone is one of the businesses that benefits from Chinese largesse during the festivities.

The newly listed company sells itself as the first sea farm for greenlip abalone in the world. Other farms are not located in the wild, rather they are commercial aquaculture facilities.
