I am not quite sure what kind of abalone is pried from the deep rocks on Jeju. After tons of research I was unable to come to a conclusion on the species of abalone on the Island. If anyone knows, please leave a comment. However, I did learn that some restaurants are turning to farm raised abalone because of the cheaper price.

Be sure to check out the women divers who are responsible for plucking all of the fresh seafood from the waters of Jeju. They dive without any oxygen tanks year round, and the most shocking thing of all is that they are all much older women. The women divers are famous throughout Korea, and many think they are crazy to use such old diving techniques in such a modern society.
