Sea Urchins in Lofoten

It all started with sea urchins in 2014. I fell in love with the purity of Arctic nature and the beauty of its paleness when diving for sea urchins with Roderick Sloan. Sloan dives for sea urchins and clams for the top Michelin star restaurants in the northern hemisphere. The sea, the wind, the nature and the coldness fascinated me. And I felt it was the beginning of something. Hence the name of this website, Echinoidea, latin for sea urchin. I wrote an article about the trip for a Finnish magazine, Viinilehti.  (see the link on this page). Photos Karoline A. O. Pettersen (
