The reddish coloration suggests Halitosis rufescens from western North America. A young one. The species reaches more than twice this size.

Hello Ermir,
possibly Paul is right, but another possibility can be Haliotis sorenseni, which is also red and from the american west coast. Hints in this direction for me are the very rounded form, the direction of the striae, but overall the high holewalls, which are in rufescens often flat.
Please look inside. Rufescens has a very rough and dark muscular scarve, sorenseni doesn't have this.
