I love to dive so abalone are no big deal for us as far as eatng them goes. I get bored to tears trolling for salmon so i was wondering if posting a trade abalone for salmon is legal?

I believe that according to the regulations, sport abalone cannot be bartered or sold. However, if you have a commercial abalone license, that's a different scenario.

I wouldn't use the Sniffer boards for this, but if you have a friend that likes abalone, and you give him some as a gift it would be legal. As long as the abalone were obtained legally. If your friend was so grateful that he gave you some salmon as a gift of friendship that would also be legal. You can not barter them though.
