Abstract
The estimation of age in abalone using shell growth rings has been achieved using two main techniques. These are the counting of external growth checks on the shell and the counting of internal growth checks within sections of the shell. Stable oxygen isotope analyses appear to be the most reliable method of validating the timing of growth check deposition.
