Ocean treasure… Wild Stock Abalone
Every wild abalone, individually selected by licensed divers since 1965, is chosen for its quality, health and size, ensuring the most flavoursome abalone that wild clean seas can produce.
Each abalone is handled as the treasure it is and because the processing is close to the Ocean, freshness and flavour are a signature trade mark of AFCOL Wild Abalone Products.
These organically grown abalone have been carefully harvested by AFCOL for over 30 years. Careful selection of every individual abalone by our divers ensures that only the best quality abalone reaches our customers.
Abalone Shell, with its pretty “Mother of Pearl” appearance has many uses such as buttons, inlay and in many cultures the shell is used in herbal remedies. The shell contains a variety of elements, including calcium, iron, magnesium, sodium and silicon, and several chemical compounds, including aspartic acid and glutamic acid.
Our Wild Abalone Shell can be sorted to customer requirements.
Location – Processing close to abalone beds
The Mallacoota Abalone Processing Plant is very close to the clean pristine waters where the wild abalone feed on large healthy untouched beds of clean ocean kelp. Processing starts on the same day as the abalone are harvested. Quality, flavour and texture are beautifully preserved because of this closeness to the ocean.
The town itself sits on the edge of the Croajingolong National Park, a designated World Biosphere Reserve.
Situated roughly halfway between Melbourne and Sydney, Mallacoota is a popular tourist destination attracting fishermen, beachgoers, bushwalkers, surfers and campers. The stunning natural beauty of the area lures holiday makers from all over the world..
The population hovers around the 1,000 mark, but increases in the holiday season to around 10,000.
