One or two suspects have been arrested after they were allegedly caught in possession of abalone worth about 12000 to 15000 in a accident,says the men were arrested during a accident and operation. She says the suspects are expected to appear in court soon:

 

“The police found that abalone when they helped that in a accident where they uncovered an illegal abalone facility.The found a total of 877 dried abalone and 26 shucked abalone, with an estimated street value of more than R15 000.The two suspects arrested are to appear in the Magistrate's Court on soon.

First amd foremost I didn't know what abalone is , I've read through the comments and it was explained. Now I wanna know why it's illegal to be in possession of it?

Poachers are supreme free divers with the ability to stay underwater for long periods. But it’s dangerous work and a risky business. Now, some former poachers are turning their lives around and becoming certified commercial divers instead. 

Great to see everyone being anti poaching on here.

We need to act responsibly about our fisheries.It is ILLEGAL to sell It in SA because Numbers of abalone are now at critically low levels due to over-exploitation. Poaching is the biggest threat to abalone. People in local communities are either paid money or given drugs by large syndicates to illegally remove abalone from the ocean. The abalone is then exported overseas.
