Red Sea Cucumber (Parastichopus californicus)
Uses

Commercial and subsistence fishers harvest sea cucumbers in Alaska. The major products from this fishery are the longitudinal and transverse muscle bundles or meat, and the skins. Skin processing involves cooking or boiling the skins to a specific texture and drying the product. The dried skins are a preferred item in upscale oriental cuisine. Sea cucumbers harvested in Southeast Alaska have been processed in Craig, Juneau, Ketchikan, Petersburg, Sitka, British Columbia and the state of Washington.
