Sea Urchin Harvest dives for the Centro Urchin (Centrostephanus), a long-spine urchin which can grow up to 30 centimetres in diameter. This type of Urchin can form extensive Urchin barrens and can typically be located on rocky and shallow reef habitats.
The Centro Urchin is a native species of New South Wales but has grown in population along the East Coast of Australia and can now be found as far down as Port Davey on the South West coast of Tasmania.
The fragile but large Australian Sea Urchin Uni has maximum natural sweetness which is unique to the NSW South Coast.
From Ulladulla in NSW to Mallacoota in Victoria where we dive, there is a very large population to source from. Combined with a luscious kelp-filled ocean floor for the sea urchins to feed on and the pristine clear waters of the South Coast, this area breeds the best Sea Urchins in Australia on a reliable and consistent basis.
The optimal months to dive for Australian Sea Urchin Uni along this coastline is generally from December through to June, when the Uni is large and is at its most delicious level.
