The abalone isn’t a fish but rather a snail that lives in the sea. It has an unusual shell that’s shaped like an ear, with a row of small holes close to one edge. The shell on the inside is similar to pearl and the inner layer of the shell is used for mother-of-pearl buttons. Under water, the abalone eats seaweed and algae. The abalone uses its foot - which is considered a delicacy by many diners - to hold onto rocks under the water. In North American waters, the abalone comes in various colors - red, black and green. Abalones can be gathered from the sea or from farms that grow them commercially.
