Deadly Abalone Season Claims Another Life

Two friends visiting northern California and fishing for abalone–a lucrative mollusc delicacy–were caught off guard while when a tide came in that forced the men up a sheer rock wall, one falling to his death 75 feet below. The incident is the fourth abalone-related death in the Mendocino region since the red abalone season began April 1.
