Big Island Abalone, Kailua-Kona

4.0
Big Island Abalone Corporation (BIAC) produces Kona Coast Abalone™, a premium stock of Ezo (Japanese Northern) abalone. Kona Coast Abalone are the result of over 15 years of research, intensive study, and experiments by the founders of the company. From the outset, the objective was to develop ways to simulate the positive elements of the natural ocean environment in which abalone flourish. The experiments and research led to important findings about abalone habitat, innovations in farm feeding practices, and a patented algae. The system uses a constant supply of pure, cold, nutrient-rich seawater, pumped from a depth of 3,000 feet in the Pacific Ocean. The result is a near-perfect environment for growing Kona Coast Abalone™.

  • Must stop during your stay on the island of Hawaii. Meet Mr. Arai also went in the fun, but was traveling to Seattle. After two days of BBQ food materials most number of minutes purchased. Insulated bags bring the original back previously sold. The clerk says "it is now a very rare toy. "With that. Come and enjoy fresh abalone in the Hawaiian Islands.

  • Great tour for the money. The only tour you'll ever take where you get to hold the creature and then eat it. (Not the same one!)
  • These guys are arrogant. I think they are some of the rudest people I have ever met. Customer service is non existent.
  • These abalone are so fresh & sweet. Plus, because of how they are raised, it is so clean, especially the sack. These are truly worth the price, it seems expensive but these are the best I have ever had
  • Amazing fresh abalone for raw or grilled
  • Abalone farmers will also retail. Barbecue, fish, anything can be delicious. Sign from the highway's solar panels. I note that there is no signal.
