Urchinomics delivers premium quality sea urchins to restaurants worldwide. At the same time, they make sure to restore the balance in ecosystems where sea urchins have had a too dominant effect.

Restore ecosystems to feed the world

Urchinomics really focuses on quality and the environment, and delivers sea urchins from areas where the kelp forest has disappeared and an imbalance has arisen due to increasing pollution and kelp trawling. To restore the balance of the ecosystems associated with sea urchins, these are removed to make room for new kelp forest. Through Urchinomic’s unique breeding techniques, they are able to turn empty sea urchins into consistent products with identical taste, color and roe yield within 6-10 weeks. With such short farming cycles, Urchinomics is able to adapt to market demand, and has thus made sea urchins of the highest quality available all year round. https://www.urchinomics.com/
