Re: Abalone death at stillwater cove
The kelp is really bad this year on the North Coast. Its the thickest anyone has ever seen it. The bottom is covered with eel grass and a type of kelp so thick that you can not see the rocks or bottom until it get about 20 to 25' deep. At about 30' the kelp starts to thin out. The bull kelp is so thick that its like diving in a jungle. I have see thick kelp is areas that have never had kelp before. I have three regualr spots that i can not even get in the water, because its covered with kelp.
Everyone thinking of coming ab diving be very very careful, this is the most dangerous conditions i have ever seen.
