hi cedricsnow,

last time i heard, the going rate for a victorian commercial abalone licence was around $5-6 million dollars. still interested?

if so, then you can contact Fisheries Victoria and ask to speak to the Abalone fishery manager and see he should be able to help you to get in contact with anyone tring to exit the industry. i believe the commercial abalone fisherman also have a professional association you might like to contact. i forget their name. in any case, if you contact the Seafood Industry Victoria (SIV) they will be able to help you. http://www.siv.com.au/

An alternative to buying a commercial abalone licence is to grow abalone in an aquaculture environment. Getting a licence to carry out aquaculture might be easier to get.

best of luck!

cheers, glen

Hi Glen,
Thanks for your info, I just spoke to a broker about it, its actully not that much.
according to calcaulation and their quota, its long time investment. so its not worth doing it.


hi cedricsnow,

last time i heard, the going rate for a victorian commercial abalone licence was around $5-6 million dollars. still interested?

if so, then you can contact Fisheries Victoria and ask to speak to the Abalone fishery manager and see he should be able to help you to get in contact with anyone tring to exit the industry. i believe the commercial abalone fisherman also have a professional association you might like to contact. i forget their name. in any case, if you contact the Seafood Industry Victoria (SIV) they will be able to help you. http://www.siv.com.au/

I don't know about victoria, in Tasmania each quota cost you 280,000 and you can only catch 715kgs per year. mind you its live weight.
on the market, processed abalone only cost $280 per kg meat only. deduct all the weights and bibs and bobs. the license holder only can sale to processors for only about 40 kG, LIVE WEIGHT. WHICH I THINK ITS A BAD INVESTMENT.
BUT THATS TASMANIA, considering they hsve more abalone than us.

how much was the price you were given? and what was the expected annual return? :woot: i thought they make about $1 million a year but i forget where i heard that. could be totally wrong.

cheers, glen
