From Site:

"Abalone divers must have a license and can take only one species, the red abalone, north of San Francisco. Divers are limited to three abalone a day and 24 a year. Each one must be at least 7 inches in diameter."
"Of about 40,000 licensed abalone divers, at least 23 have died since 2004 in Mendocino and Sonoma counties, according to official records and news reports."

*So to sum it up 23 people have died for 24 pieces of abalone they are only allowed to have once a year? Nothing can possibly taste that good.
