Commercial abalone divers are required to deliver their abalone to the holder of a fish processing licence endorsed for abalone.

Processors handling abalone are located throughout Tasmania. The number increased from 20 in 1992 to 27 in 2000, with the number peaking at 43 in 1995.

Most abalone are detached from the shell (shucked) then canned or individually quick-frozen. A small (but growing) proportion of the catch is exported live to interstate and Asian markets.
