Sea Urchin Uni
Sea urchins are found in every ocean of the world, across many climate zones, from polar to tropical. If you've walked on essentially any beach on the planet, it’s likely you've once come across the spiky echinoderm.
For most people, what springs to mind when thinking of a sea urchin is a marine animal that leaves behind a beautiful exoskeleton that you can even collect as a souvenir.
However for other people, sea urchins are known as one of the most sublime delicacies found in the sea. Sea urchins have been viewed like this for centuries by people of the Mediterranean, native Alaskans, and East Asians just to name a few.
Taste-wise, the uni has a distinct deep savoury umami and a fresh salty taste form the sea. The texture is extremely soft; the little red clouds literally melt in your mouth the moment you bite into them, and the sea taste and the creamy texture of uni are quite similar to that of salmon roe.

The spines are different lengths, the diameter of the test reaches 9cm while the height is only 3cm.
The whitest sea urchin is a subtidal species found to 1600m deep, and inhabits rocky areas.
