Angel Seafoods often has live uni in the back. Also, in Steveston, one boat specializes in uni. It is called Kuroshio. I don't know if he is still selling over the winter but you can call him at (250) 812-1252

Cured ikura - also at Angel. You can get small amounts at Fujiya. I haven't seen uncured ikura retail in quite some time. (Many years ago, my father used to buy buckets of egg sacs from fishermen in Steveston for peanuts. This was before they started shipping it to Japan, of course).

Sung fish co. While they don't have a retail desk, if you call first and ask for Mrs Park you can buy uni when they are processing. They do not process every day. You can get trays of top export quality, trays of second quality, or, if you *really* like uni (like me), a box of bulk seconds (broken pieces, about a kilo!! for $25). That makes a lot of uni cones. You could probably also buy some live ones from them if you are willing to get 10 kg or so.

Second on the Kuroshio. One other boat is there very regularly, even in winter; but I think he is selling urchins from a processor so they don't seem quite as fresh as the Kuroshio (spines all broken off). I usually call the Kuroshio to see when he will be there.

Ikura is fairly often available from Steveston as well, depending on season. They had chum ikura there a month or so ago.
