The white abalone , Haliotis sorenseni, supported valuable commercial fisheries only 30 years ago. In 2002, this species became the first marine invertebrate in the United States to achieve federal endangered species status. The overall goal of this project was to collect life history, genetic and disease susceptibility data that to support recovery.
