Healthy urchins are a highly-prized delicacy – particularly in Japan. But when urchins run out of food, they lose all of their goodness and become inedible. Which means the oceans are currently full of urchins no-one wants to eat.

What if it were possible to turn those low-quality urchins into an abundance of healthy, high-value food and, in doing so, restore kelp forests and support livelihoods?

We’ve found a way.

URCHINOMICS = Healthy seabed, healthy urchins, healthy profits.
