Marine invertebrates have long been consideredto be resistant to overfishing. However, agrowing number of exploited taxa have declinedsubstantially and even disappeared from partsof their former range. We consider the case ofthe white abalone (Haliotis sorenseni);the first marine invertebrate proposed for theUS endangered species list. This high-valuespecies was one of five abalones targeted inthe California and Mexico fisheries; it is nowrare and protected from fishing. The… 
Invertebrate Dive Fisheries Can Be Sustainable: Forty Years of Production from a Greenlip Abalone Fishery off Southern Australia
TLDR
Sustainability of benthic invertebrate fisheries vulnerable to overfishing could be enhanced by adopting elements of the management system underpinning the South Australian abalone fishery since 1968, which has been underpinned by formal management plans.
Population Status Assessment and Restoration Modeling of White Abalone Haliotis sorenseni in California
TLDR
A deterministic density-dependent size-based matrix model was developed to investigate different stocking scenarios, incorporating an innovative method for modeling low populations by setting the reproductive term as a function of adult density to mimic a reproductive Allee effect, and shows how low population densities can impact threatened and endangered species.
Survey estimates of fishable biomass following a mass mortality in an Australian molluscan fishery.
TLDR
The integration of research surveys with commercial fishermen's knowledge to estimate the biomass of abalone on AVG-impacted reefs indicated that the abalone populations have yet to adequately recover.
Habitat of endangered white abalone, Haliotis sorenseni
A review of the world marine gastropod fishery: evolution of catches, management and the Chilean experience
TLDR
The fishery of abalonespecies in California and the west coast of the Baja California peninsula is summarized and the necessary steps for the sustainable management of marine gastropods and other benthic resources are discussed.
MEASURING ABALONE (HALIOTIS SPP.) RECRUITMENT IN CALIFORNIA TO EXAMINE RECRUITMENT OVERFISHING AND RECOVERY CRITERIA
TLDR
It is demonstrated that ARMs can be used to monitor recruitment in the northern fishery, as well as establish quantitative recovery criteria to assess abalone restoration efforts that are desperately needed in the south.
Status and habitat associations of the threatened northern abalone: importance of kelp and coralline algae
TLDR
It is recommended that kelp beds with abundant coralline substrate be used for restoration including stocking juveniles and adult aggregations as this biogenic habitat may enhance northern abalone restoration actions.
Drift macroalgae as a potential dispersal mechanism for the white abalone Haliotis sorenseni
TLDR
Attention of 1 to 3 yr old white abalone during routine monitoring of hatchery-raised individuals revealed behavior that may provide an alternative long-range dispersal mechanism, and two new behaviors were observed during this study.
Towards Improved Management of Tropical Invertebrate Fisheries: Including Time Series and Gender
TLDR
This case study illustrates the need for formal monitoring to assess changes in invertebrate resources, and possible ecological consequences, over time, and shows how unregulated harvesting of invertebrates may result in sharp declines in animal abundance over a relatively short period of time.

Marine Invertebrate Conservation: Evaluation of Fisheries Over-exploitation Concerns
TLDR
Instances of overfishing by cause are discussed, and examples are presented to demonstrate how managers are dealing with or have dealt with different situations.
Southern California Abalones: Can Stocks Be Rebuilt Using Marine Harvest Refugia?
TLDR
An experimental transplant of green abalone brood stock into sites where the drift tube data suggested high probability of larval retention led to a dramatic increase in juvenile abundance, a pattern not seen at distant controls.
Neoextinctions of Marine Invertebrates
TLDR
Searches in the literature and museums for overlooked neoextinctions would fruitfully focus on species reported from highly impacted, urbanized coastal habitats—saltmarshes, estuaries, lagoons, seagrass communities, and supralittoral (maritime) zones—habitats now largely obliterated on most coastal margins of the world.
Rehabilitation of depleted fisheries: brood stock transplants as an approach to abalone enhancement
TLDR
Green abalone populations on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in southern California showed little evidence of recovery despite adequate food supplies and a fishing closure, and drift tubes were released to investigate the dispersal potential of this species' relatively short-lived larvae.
Evaluating the Effects of Three Forms of Marine Reserve on Northern Abalone Populations in British Columbia, Canada
Abstract: Marine reserves have been suggested as tools for assisting the management of fisheries by protecting vulnerable marine species from overexploitation. Although there is a theoretical basis
Evidence for Allee effects in an over-harvested marine gastropod: density-dependent mating and egg production
TLDR
Heavily exploited populations of queen conch in the Caribbean have been slow to recover despite fishery closures, and failure to recover could result from spawning stock densities that are reduced to the point at which Allee effects begin to operate on reproductive behavior.
Drift-tube study of the dispersal potential of green abalone (Haliotis fulgens) larvae in the southern California Bight: implications for recovery of depleted populations
TLDR
In the absence of local brood stock, the present fishery closure is not likely to promote recovery of mainland populations of H. fulgens in the near future, and results underscore the importance of local current patterns and details of larval life histories to the understanding of patterns of distribution in any area.
Recent declines of black abalone Haliotis cracherodii on the mainland coast of central California
TLDR
Observations demonstrate that the mass mortal~ty syndlome of black abalone has reached central Cal~fornia and is progressing northward from Point Conceptlon.
Applications of marine refugia to coastal fisheries management
TLDR
Evidence from existing marine reserves indicates that increased abundance, individual size, reproductive output, and species diversity occurred in a variety of marine species in refuges of various sizes, shapes, and histories in communities ranging from coral reefs to temperate kelp forests.
Status and Trends of White Abalone at the California Channel Islands
Abstract The white abalone Haliotis sorenseni occupied rocky reefs in high densities around the California Channel Islands at depths of 26–65 m in the early 1970s. By 1981, white abalone densities
