Big Island Abalone, Kailua-Kona

(4.3/5 based on 40 reviews on the web)
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™.

  • BBQ I had to stay away, trying to fish once in a while and went to buy here. Depending on the size, will sell in quantity and pound. Sushi and Japanese people use to tell me clarified. I bought a 1 pound 10 much of it. But I ate baked in foil, soft and delicious. If the opportunity arises, then as sashimi I want.

  • 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
  • Will you sell the cultured abalone.

  • 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.
