Tom Ebert founded American Abalone Farms, in 1989 with 50 seawater tanks. Located in Davenport on the “Slow Coast,” he has built up the business over time and the company has grown to over 3000 tanks today, with more being installed every day.

Tom grew up along the Central California Coast and spent many days at a research lab in Carmel run by his father, a research biologist for Fish & Game. Tom explained, “My father did research behind abalone, oysters, clam, lobsters. Since I was 10 years old, I spent time in the lab and was exposed to it. I then got my masters at Moss Landing Marine Laboratory and my focus in grad school was abalone. After I graduated, I was looking around for a career, and an abalone farm seemed a good opportunity. There was demand for live seafood, and this is especially sustainably produced.”
