CTV News: Sea urchin farm launched in Nanaimo first of its kind, scientists say
Scientists hope a new pilot project will show that a sustainable, spiny seafood could be British Columbia’s next big export.
Researchers brought about 3,000 adult sea urchins gathered from B.C. waters to a farm off the coast of Nanaimo to kick off a 12-week trial on Friday.
The project aims to create a new sustainable sea urchin aquaculture – a first for Canada.
