Pt Conception is N.W. of Santa Barbra about 25 miles or so. Abalone diving on Scuba was legal in So.Cal up until the 90's ,Then they almost got wiped out,by Disease,commercial Divers,and otters. There is a few pockets left on san magel,and santa rosa islands. The Red ab is the only one that is doing well,Blacks,and the whites are on the virge of extinction.I am not sure about the pinks,and greens.
