Abstract Unsustainability of abalone harvesting has become a worldwide trend. Australian abalone fisheries have thus far defied this seemingly inevitable path towards collapse, remaining generally sustainable until recently. Today unfavourable market and export conditions, disease, climate change, ecological shifts, and reduced catch quotas challenge the capacity of Australian abalone fisheries to remain sustainable into the future. Profits are down and the resilience of these fisheries is under threat.
