Kina While an opened kina does not look particularly appetising, to many people the orange/yellow roe it contains is a true delicacy.
Kina – commonly referred to as ‘sea eggs’ – can be found along the rocky foreshore throughout the country, just below the inter-tidal zone. Found in relatively shallow water and being stationary, it is not difficult to catch. A word of warning though – the animal is protected by an array of sharp spines which can inflict a nasty puncture wound to any skin they encounter, possibly resulting in infection.
