Who knew you could farm Abalone? Infographic explains sustainable farming of red abalone in Monterey Bay

Here is a graphic I created for Bay Area News Group that ran in print and online last week in the San Jose Mercury News, Oakland Tribune and the Contra Costa Times. Hidden from the view of tourists the Monterey Abalone Company is busy farming abalone under a municipal pier in Monterey. The natural and sustainable way of farming foodie favorite red abalone utilizes the seawater habitat of Monterey Bay. The graphic went with a story by Nicholas St. Fleur. I enjoyed rolling up my sleeves and doing the graphics research, reporting, writing and Adobe Illustrator rendering for this one. It ran online as shown here. In print the top portion showing the growth of the abalone ran on the front page and the rest of the graphic ran on the jump. Here is the link to Nick’s story: http://goo.gl/10Jju8
