About The Farm

Since the collapse & closure of the commercial abalone fishery in California during the 1990’s, abalone aquaculture has been supplying the world’s ever growing demand for abalone. American Abalone Farms is an aquaculture facility that grows California Red Abalone within the pristine waters of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Our facility is located on the beach in Davenport, California. Our abalone are raised in a very natural environment; our seawater pumps continuously supply clean, fresh seawater to our abalone tanks and they are fed a natural diet consisting of a variety of fresh local seaweeds that we harvest ourselves. We have been producing the highest quality red abalone and shipping them (live and tenderized) around the world for over 25 years. Order our abalone online and receive in one business day! You can also get our abalone directly from the farm, we are open to the public every Saturday (10 am -2 pm) at 245 Davenport Landing Road, Davenport, CA 95017
