Harvest Season

Pacific Red Sea Urchin Roe are one of the most sought Seafood found along the BC Coast. Our sea urchin roe is harvested in the South BC Coast (Vancouver Island), North BC Coast (Prince Rupert), and Haida Gwaii, depending on the time of the season. Each urchin is individually hand-picked by our skilled and experienced divers. Raw Sea Urchin roe offers an exceptionally natural sweet and ocean salty flavor that can only be achieved from fresh caught seafood. Originally consumed in Japan, the popularity of BC Sea Urchin Roe has exploded to all across Asia and is reaching new markets every year. Sushi aficionados agree that uni is an essential part of any sushi experience, and BC uni sushi is as good as it gets!
