The Sea Urchin is a forageable item found year-round in the Tide Pool section of the Beach, i.e., to the east of the wooden footbridge[1]. During Summer 12-14 extra Sea Urchins appear anywhere on the beach (including possibly the western section).

The average spawn rate for Sea Urchin in the tide pool section of the beach is 0.23/day. An additional 0.8 (on average) Sea Urchins per day will spawn during Summer 12-14. These spawn rates are not affected by the presence of other forageable items on the beach; in particular, Sea Urchins are not part of the standard six item per map limit on forageable items. 7 Foraging XP are granted for every Sea Urchin picked up, and all Foraging bonuses apply to Sea Urchins.

Emily may occasionally send you a Sea Urchin in the mail as a gift. All saltwater Crab Pot fish may also produce a Sea Urchin in a Fish Pond, when the population of the pond reaches 5.
