Currently, the only sustainable abalone fishery in California is in the northern region of the state, which has remained productive for nearly 60 years. In 2007, the last year numbers are available, the estimated catch was 309,000, a considerable increase from the previous high of 264,000.

According to recent surveys, approximately 34,600 fishermen fished for abalone in 2007 and spent an estimated $11.3 million in northern California communities. However, each dollar directly spent on abalone fishing stimulates a trickle-down effect of additional spending as it enters local economies. When these additional expenditures are taken into account, the total economic impact of the abalone fishery for 2007 is nearly $16 million.
