ON THE COVER: The culture of abalone diving saw its heyday in the 1970s, and even though sea snail searching will never again be the same, a San Miguel Island fishery may be in the works. Read about abalone’s past, present, and future in this week’s cover story, starting here. The cover image of Ken Norton of Bodega Bay, holding an abalone he picked, was taken a week after four people died in pursuit of abalone. Cover image: AP Photo/Ben Margot.
