    Gooseneck barnacles are one of the most expensive seafoods in the world. Just 1 pound can cost over $100 in Spain and Portugal, where the barnacles are considered a delicacy. But getting your hands on them is harder than it seems. The job comes with serious risks - and even the possibility of death. So why are these barnacles so difficult to harvest? And is that what makes them so expensive?

The person who found out we could eat this thing must spent years starving. I would have seen this and never thought we can actually eat it

the risk of death really improves the taste of those barnacles. also, i love how they talk about the care that is taken to avoid damage to other nearby creatures... just as he jabs a knife into a mass of barnacles and proceeds to twist the whole mass loose from the rock.

I find the harvesting of these barnacles both very satisfying and unsettling.

When my parents lived in Portugal they went to a market on the week and bought this to eat. They’re apparently amazing, never personally tried.

For anyone wondering about him not wearing a life vest... he IS wearing a life vest. That's a Mustang brand inflatable life vest. It has a CO2 cartridge that inflates when it hits the water.

I just feel like there is a lot of potential in upgrading the harvesting tools.

I remember I found these on the beach as little girl, I brought them home and thought they were going to live . I remember the rancid smell in my bucket after a few days. My parents knew I was a nerd and liked to explore so they allowed me to rock on, I thought I saved them 😂 because they washed ashore , I researched for years to find out what they were , as an adult I felt bad for not just throwing them back into the ocean

he current price of a kilo of barnacle at the auction, that is to say from the boat to the 1st purchase, is € 90 kg and for the final consumer, € 130 upwards according to origin. It is a delicacy for all those who can appreciate it. It is like many other products in other countries. It is something totally cultural and it does not have to be liked by everyone. Regarding fishing, the video shows a good fisherman on a good day at sea. In Galicia, the barnacles do not have that luck and their barnacles are much fatter and larger due to the force of the sea that forces them to cling to the rocks. the flavor is more intense by the Atlantic / Cantabrian sea

Fun fact: you had no idea what gooseneck barnacles were before you clicked on this video.

In Spain we call these Percebes and it’s seen as a delicacy for sure. Didn’t know countries outside the Iberian peninsula ate them though 👍

I travelled to Portugal many times before, and I know a friend there who is a fisher and he once brought some goosenecks from a trip and explained how difficult it was to get them. They were delicious! Most of the time expensive food isn’t that great but they were just amazing from the texture to the taste, if you get your hands on them you are very lucky.

I have tried it once in Laxe, Spain. I wouldn't say it's something I would miss eating or recommend to my loved ones to eat as an item of bucket list. 🙂

I’ve harvested these before. What you saw in this video is an easy catch. They get much tougher.

For anyone not aware the most priced barnacles in EU are the ones coming from the Costa Da Morte (The Coast of Death) in Galicia (Spain) and right now you need to pay about 48€ for 500 grams but they can go higher than 70€. If they're from Cantabria however they can be worth (depending on season and class) up to +100€ per Kg. Just last year 5 people died while harvesting them.

I'm no gooseneck barnacle expert, but I feel like harvesting them would be easier if they had more efficient tools and not a pocket knife and flathead screwdriver.

Heard about these on my trip to A Coruña. Beautiful city on a truly fascinating region of Spain. Galicia is such an underrated tourist destination, hopefully more people can experience their wonderful culture
