Color, texture, presentation, and size are all important considerations, making for a highly competitive market. Domestic urchin roe is almost always considered superior in Japan to any import, but high-quality imports from Eastern Russia and the Western US can also go for a high price. The best quality urchin roe is usually golden orange to yellow and has a distinct, sweet ocean taste, while poorer quality urchin tends to be bitterer or have brownish coloration. In markets such as the United States and Canada, where urchin roe is still a relatively new product, quality is not as important as in Japan.
