  • Description:
    This five-year review was led by the NMFS West Coast Region. Much of the updated information on the species’ biology and habitat was compiled by two student interns in the summer of 2016: Alyssa Braciszewski and Lara Slatoff. The primary sources of information and data for this review came from reports, publications, and information available from ongoing studies and reviews that have become available since the status review completed by VanBlaricom et al. (2009). We gathered information through: 1) literature searches on various search engines (e.g., Google Scholar, Research Gate, Web of Science); 2) publication of a Federal Register (FR) notice soliciting new information about black abalone; and 3) email and phone contact with abalone experts at universities and state and federal government agencies. Section 2.3 (Updated Information and Current Species Status) was reviewed by the Black Abalone Recovery Team (BART), to ensure that this Section accurately presents the best available information that has become available since the 2009 Status Review on the species’ biology, habitat, status, and threats. The BART consists of research biologists and resource managers representing several agencies and institutions with expertise on abalone, rocky intertidal and subtidal habitats, and conservation.
