Sonoma County Abalone Network Elects New President, Seeks New Challenges, While Protecting North Coast Abalone

Santa Rosa, California
July 6, 2005

The Sonoma County Abalone Network (S.C.A.N.) recently elected Rocky Daniels to succeed S.C.A.N. Founder George Lawry as President of the State's leading Abalone Anti-Poaching Organization.
"Not a time to relax and reminisce," says George Lawry, S.C.A.N.'s outgoing President. "The poachers are still at it; only their methods and technology have changed due to the tighter regulations imposed by California's Department of Fish and Game and the stricter law enforcement by the courts and excellent investigative methods of the Dept of Fish and Game."

Rocky Daniels, a founding member of SCAN, active diver, former dive club president and current member of the Dept. of Fish and Game Director's Recreational Abalone Advisory Committee, will take over as President immediately.

SCAN is starting the next ten years with new officers and an expanded board of directors.

Curtis Degler, PADI certified diving instructor, underwater photographer, past Diver representative to the California Dept. of Fish and Game's MLPA's central region, will become Secretary.

Outgoing President and SCAN founder, George will stay on as the Treasurer.

With newly elected officers and new directors, SCAN is ready to take on new challenges.

"Much is happening with our ocean and it seems everyone wants a piece of it. There will be conflicts to resolve. Although our prime mission, as always, will remain with abalone issues, we must look at the broad picture of the marine environment and how it can be best utilized for all Californians" commented George Lawry.

"If we are able to continue S.C.A.N.'s successes of the past 10 years, I'm optimistic that our grandchildren and their children can enjoy a healthy abalone fishery off California's north coast" reflects Rocky Daniels, in-coming SCAN President.

About S.C.A.N.:

The Sonoma County Abalone Network (SCAN), a tax-exempt non-profit Corporation, was formed in 1995 in direct response to the major abalone poaching events taking place during the early- and mid-1990. Now, in 2005, SCAN is still active while major poaching events have been reduced since the organization was founded.
