The purpose of this study was to determine the abundance of Haliotis squamata abalone predators at Geger Beach, Nusa Dua, Bali and to find out the types of Haliotis squamata abalone predators. The method used is Underwater Visual Census by using belt transects with a length of 50 meters with a distance of 2.5 meters left and right side 2.5 meters with a total area of 250 m2. This research was conducted at 3 different points with the addition of the abalone drum area as observations of more specific abalone predators with the help of cameras.
