We investigated the survival rate by water temperature and salinity, physiological rhythm and morphological change of live abalone to get to know optimum water temperature and salinity suitable for long-distance transportation of live abalone. At and above, 96-100% of survival rate was shown at all experiment groups. At , 66% of abalones survived in normal seawater but they showed 0% of survival rate at and of salinity at the same water temperature. There was no significant difference of oxygen consumption rate for a week between the seawater and . Also, a positive correlation was shown between salinity and water temperature and the oxygen consumption rate was slightly higher at than seawater. Thinned epithelial layers and expansion of lymph sinus were observed less than or below of temperature. This result shows that the optimum level of water temperature and salinity is considered to be and more than respectively.
