We were out N. of Jenner today and there were hundreds of washed up ab on the shore line. This was a very abundant spot for diving and several months ago we were diving for beautiful abs. What is happening???? It is heart breaking to see all ages of rotting abalone without their shells washed up on the shore. This should be a big deal...wtf.
