Stay Connected to Your Bay

All Abs on Deck!

Santa Monica Bay kelp forests once teemed with a rainbow of abalone species—red, pink, green, white, black, threaded, and flat – but due to overharvesting and disease, their numbers have devastatingly declined. TBF has been working to bring abalone back and our projects are ramping up just in time for the spawning season. Monthly, we have been spawning captive red abalone in our lab at SCMI, and conducting deck spawning treatments on wild green abalone off Catalina Island. The larvae and juveniles from these experiments will be outplanted to help restore abalone populations within Santa Monica Bay.




The California Department of Fish and Wildlife released the Draft Environmental Impact Statement / Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIS/EIR) for the Ballona Wetlands Restoration Project on Monday, September 25, 2017 at the following website:  To view the Notice of Availability (NOA), click here.
