The catch that’s been waiting all year.
The abalone season is short, and this is your only chance until next year to give it a go. So if you want the best possible catch, it’s important to make sure you do it right and do it safely.
Every year, thousands of people from across the country and the world flock to WA to fish for abalone. But tragically, six people have drowned whilst abalone fishing since 2012.
With just a few simple preparations, these tragedies can be avoided. All it takes is some simple planning and making sure you have the right equipment to make your catch easier, and safer.
LOCATION UPDATE: Ocean Reef will not be patrolled by land or water.
Beach access is currently restricted due to the sea wall construction as part of the Ocean Reef Marina project.
