Abstract

Abalones, commonly known as ear shell are economically important marine gastropods belonging to the genus Haliotis. There are about 100 species of the abalones in the world. Abalone occur in all major oceans of the world but they appear to be more abundant in the temperate zone. Large abalones are mainly distributed in the temperate zone, while small specimens are typically found in topics and the cold zone. The body of abalone is divided into three parts: head, foot and saccate intestine. Head is located on the anterior pat of the body and comprises a mouth, appendages and sensory organs. It has a pair of tentacles and two eyes at the tip of eyestalk, which originates at the bottom of the tentacles. Foot of the abalone is a creeping organ of muscular tissue, which lies on the ventral pat of the body. The well-developed foot has a broad sole, which allows the animal to strongly adhere to rocks and other had substrates
