Pinto Abalone Speaker at April MRC Meeting
Guest speaker for the MRC's April 4 meeting is Bob Sizemore, WDFW wildlife biologist working with numerous partners on recovery of Pinto Abalone. See Agenda for more details.
Continued declines in Washington pinto abalone populations prompted the WDFW, University of Washington (UW), Puget Sound Restoration Fund and other partners to develop a captive breeding program, refine hatchery propagation techniques and conduct field experiments with juvenile outplanting.
