Summary

Australian woman dives for Abalone. Pat Dennison is an abalone diver and, at 38, is at an age when most men in this strenuous profession think about retiring. Mrs Dennison dives for abalone in Frederick Henry Bay near her home a few kilometres from Hobart, capital of Australia's island State of Tasmania. First diving professionally for abalone in 1966, Mrs Dennison has only recently returned to the industry after a 2 1/2-year break. Australia exports almost $A18,000,000 a year of the shellfish. There are 383 registered abalone diviers in Australia, 125 of them in Tasmania.--Information on labels on reverse.
