A Welsh family found around 2,000 gooseneck barnacles attached to a log of wood on that washed ashore on the beaches of Caernarfon in Western Wales.
The barnacles that Martin Green's family found were reportedly around 2,000 in numbers. Each of those is expected to fetch approximately £35 in the seafood market. Some species of gooseneck barnacles are farmed in the jetties of Oregon in the United States due to its high pricing and demand. These barnacles also have great demand in European countries like Spain and Portugal.
