Info

Haliotis cracherodii Leach, 1814

Haliotis cracherodii, common name the Black abalone, is a species of sea snai in the family Haliotidae, the abalones.Abalones are algae grazer.

This used to be the most abundant large marine mollusk on the west coast of North America, but now, because of overfishing and the Withering Syndrome, it has much declined in population and the IUCN Red List has classed the black abalone as Critically Endangered.
