      Ranch 99 will sometimes carry live sea urchin in their seafood section. You can't always tell how much roe is in the sea urchin though -- I've had huge sea urchins that gave very little roe, and small ones that had lots of roe; if you need a certain amount of fresh sea urchin, it's more economical and more consistent to buy the wooden boxes.
