"On August 4, 1958, the Oregon Fish Commission entered into a two-year agreement with two California fishermen to do exploratory work off the Oregon coast for red abalone (Haliotis rufescens). In August 1960 the Fish Commission renewed this contract for two years with one of these fishermen. The purpose of this report is to review results of exploratory work to date and consider the courses of action to be taken when the contract expires in August 1962." (Introduction) In addition to a review of the work done, there are notes about the history and biology of the red abalone in Oregon.
