Sea Grant research has led to the development of a cure for an abalone wasting disease that destroyed about $1.5-million worth of farmed abalone product at two California farms during the1997–98 El Niño. The antibiotic therapy is now being used to help in the restoration of endangered wild white abalone on the U.S. West Coast.
