To promote a better understanding of the environment we so love to explore, the Central California Council of Diving Clubs, known as Cen Cal, is offering our annual California Diving & Aquatic Studies Scholarship. This award was previously named the Seaviews/Cen Cal Marine Science Scholarship.

2018 Abalone Fishing Closed
The state Fish and Game Commission voted Thursday, December 7, to suspend the harvest of red abalone in 2018, shutting down the last viable abalone fishery in California for at least a year. The shutdown will be revisited at the end of 2018 to decide whether the fishery would be viable for sport hunters in 2019.
