The International Abalone Society (IAS) is an international forum, intended to promote research on abalone; facilitate the distribution of information on abalone; promote cooperation between abalone researchers and members of the abalone industry; and to recognize the achievements of individuals and organizations by the award of IAS International awards.

The 10th IAS symposium will be held in Xiamen, China from 8 - 12 May, 2018.

The Pattaya symposium venue provided an opportunity for the third WWF Abalone Dialogue aimed at developing a standard for certifying sustainable abalone aquaculture. The dialogue was well attended, and included industry representatives, aquaculture researchers, and abalone ecologists and aquatic health experts. Under the guidance of WWF's Colin Brannen and colleagues, the mix of skills made for meaningful inputs and laid the foundation for a draft standard. The steering committee responsible for drafting the abalone aquaculture standard was expanded, and is expected to meet to finalise a draft in early 2010.

UPDATE:
Global standards addressing the potential negative impacts of abalone farming on the environment and society have been finalized by the Abalone Aquaculture Dialogue. You can access the full standards here.
