We currently have approximately 75 MT of cultivated abalone shells in stock and ready to ship from our warehouse in Cape Town, South Africa.  These shells range between 5 cm and 10 cm long or 2" to 4".  There will be some breakage.  The shells are packed in 25-kg poly bags.

The shells are fumigated at the port and can only be shipped by the container load.  Approximately 12 MT can be loaded into one 20' container and 25 MT into one 40' container.

Delivery time to the port is approximately two weeks following confirmation of an order and receipt of the wire transfer.
