  • Description:
    The pinto abalone (Haliotis kamtschatkana Jonas 1845) is a relatively large prosobranch gastropod mollusk ranging from approximately Salisbury Sound (north of Sitka), Alaska, to Bahia Tortugas, Baja California, Mexico and occurring in intertidal and subtidal habitats from 0- 40m depth. The quality and quantity of abundance information derived from both fisherydependent and independent sources vary by geographic area. The best available data indicate that pinto abalone abundance has declined in many areas throughout the species’ range due to fisheries harvest. Subsistence and personal use fisheries in Alaska and a commercial fishery in Mexico persist. Preliminary data from surveys in 2011 and 2012 indicate signs of recovery in pinto abalone populations along the British Columbia coast, most likely due to a reduction in illegal harvest.
