Unfortunately, a licence is needed in order to harvest for goose barnacles, and these are normally given to locals in the west coast. We do not recommend that tourists take on the initiative and go harvesting for goose barnacles on their own, as this can be very dangerous and in some cases, even deadly.
Instead, we recommend you try the following restaurants that serve this amazing delicacy
