- Haliotis rufescens is one of the most important species for aquaculture in Baja California, México. The longitudinal cross-section of H. rufescens shows two types of microstructure: an outer prismatic layer (calcite), and an inner nacreous layer (aragonite). The two forms of CaCO3, calcite (rhombohedral) and aragonite (orthorhombic) constitute the inorganic component of this ceramic/organic composite. Currently, there is an apparent skewed sex ratio, where males are changing to females, and this affects broodstock availability to obtain larvae at commercial scale. Increasing interest has been put in studying aspects such as reproduction, thermoregulation and endocrinology.
