Sea cucumber is a luxury food item on the plates of wealthy Chinese consumers - a far cry from their origin in the tropical waters of the Pacific, where they are harvested by local communities for export. In this edition of the WorldFish podcast, natural resource management scientist, Hampus Eriksson, explains the importance of sea cucumber for Pacific communities, and discusses conservation measures to protect these species for future generations.
