Green urchins are more specific to the Kodiak area than to here in SE.

Honestly, I don't know if anyone's doing much diving for red urchins these days. My ex knows more about them than I do. When I see him tomorrow I'll ask about it. There's also some geoduck diving--not sure what's up with abalone these days around here. I wouldn't mind having some to smoke though. If I find out anything that could be of use to you, I'd prefer to DM you with the info rather than put it on the board for any idjit to see.

Obviously you are not Alaskan since I have yet to meet an Alaskan with your type of attitude. I would suggest that you leave your attitude from where ever you are coming from. Although you can bring it with you and see how it works out for you. It's your choice I just wish I could be there to watch what happens the first time you come off with a comment like this, face-to-face with an Ol'timer

We found lots of sea urchins at low tide last week. I ate my first one. You eat the orange stuff.

Well...I'm on my first cup of coffee so I'll try to be coherent. Supposed to be in the 80's here today. What with all the celebrations going on concerning the recent good new in AK I haven't had much time to find out much about the diving thing. But it seems to be a supplemental thing for the guys who do it and getting into it is a matter of who you know, but I don't think it's something that people can rely on for a full time income. If you were already living here and let it be known that you can dive, I think you could find something. You might want to think about getting some sort of seasonal work and then getting to know some locals--that would be the best way. Got to have more coffee now.

Not bad. Very salty but so is pretty much everything that comes out of the ocean.

I didn't realize it was still alive when we scooped the stuff out. I'm trying to eat everything the island residents eat while I'm here.

Thanks, you answered my question as to what do you do with them..., and those geoducks are some rather strange looking creatures
