It was ok. Salty and really no texture to speak of. I thought it might be grainy but it wasn't. I wouldn't turn it away if I were a quest and it was served to me. I've never seen live urchins for sale anywhere so I guess, this may be my only opportunity tp eat them. I'm going out with a family group tomorrow to watch while they get their subsistence salmon. I'm sure there are going to be lots of new things for me to try. The residents here eat their traditional foods as much as possible.

Must have some interesting underwater experiences with all that diving. Ever see a killer whale while you are down there?
