Glutton for Punishment

Episode Description

Sea Urchin

Bob is about to meet his match in the form of sea urchins, little red invertebrates that are covered in sharp spikes! The sea urchin may look like an underwater porcupine, but inside is a treasure of delicious roe that is a delicacy in seafood restaurants around the world. Bob’s challenge is to win a race against the salty dog crew of Vancouver Island’s Kuroshio Urchin Harvesting Boat who are determined to beat the city slicker in a frenzied urchin harvesting race. Bob’s rigorous training includes a crash course in scuba diving and learning the dangerous art of harvesting sea urchins off the ocean floor. Can Bob rake in enough of this spiky delicacy to join the Kuroshio’s elite crew, or will he walk the plank?
