Can Captive Breeding Save the Endangered White Abalone?

White abalone was the first marine invertebrate to land on the endangered species list, thanks to years of reckless overfishing and breeding habits that require dense populations. Researchers believe the White abalone population is declining by about 14 percent each year. In the absence of a solution, the species would likely be doomed to extinction. Scientists at the Bodega Marine Lab are hoping to avoid that.
