CA: Abalone hunter found dead off Sonoma Coast identified

June 14, 2017


Kenneth Klaverweiden, 32, died Tuesday. He had been looking for abalone in the rocks in Fisk Mill Cove.

Abalone season is often a deadly affair with multiple deaths each season.

This is the only abalone‑related death so far this season in Sonoma County. A 58-year-old Oakland man died May 27 while diving for abalone near Point Arena in Mendocino County.
