Sea Urchins (Uni)

Sea urchins are found in the Pacific Ocean from as far north as Alaska to as far south as Baja California. They generally live in rocky-floored kelp forests, ingesting their main sources of food, kelp and algae.  In the 1960s sea urchins were considered a threat to the kelp ecosystem as they overgrazed healthy kelp forests. Measures were taken by authorities to try to eradicate urchins, including hammering and dousing them with quicklime.
