Dove today and saw a few abs. Non over 7 though. Not sure if that's a good sign or not. Little kelp but few urchin in the area.

My parent's moved to Santa Barbara in 1970, they remember seeing piles of abalone shells on the sides of the roads along the coast. There was an abundance of abalone in the ocean back then and they were harvested to near extinction. Not any more, and 50 years later, there are very very very few abalone down there. So I don't think we will be seeing a resurgence of abalone in any of our old favorite spots for a couple generations at least.
