Prized for their iridescent shells and delectable meat, abalone have a long and rich cultural history in California; but with increasing stresses to marine ecosystems today, these unique mollusks now face enormous challenges. Join award-winning, author Ann Vileisis for a deep dive into the environmental history of abalone, based on her new book Abalone: the remarkable history and uncertain future of California’s iconic shellfish. She’ll cover exciting abalone restoration efforts as well as lessons that this California story has for Oregon and for everyone who cares about marine life.
