Marine crustacean that lives fixed to the bottom or as a parasite.
The goose barnacle lives in areas with strong undercurrents where the sea crashes violently.
The rougher and colder the water, the more oxygen and the better the barnacles, which is why the largest ones are found on the rocks where there are more waves.
Goose barnacle meat is one of the most prized of all shellfish due to its strong sea flavour and how difficult it is to capture.
