They are actually animals, not plants (just for those who didnt know).
Can we call those guys hunters then? Yes from me!

I'm not a fan of seafood but I've eaten percebes in Vigo and they're simply delicious.. if you're visiting Spain or Portugal and you find such things on the menu go ahead and try them, brilliant food..

Also, cool video!

With all these camera angles and slow-mo's, this looks like it's filmed in hollywood studios ;)

Couldn't you go out with a snorkel when the sea isnt as rough and just dive for them?

To bad they cut out all the wave impacts with the camera, like at 2:55

"percebes" are Goose barnacle

#5 the Goose barnacle are also found in Eastern Pacific coast of North America, from Canada to Baja California, Mexico
Not sure if it's the same kind as in Spain

200 Euros the kilogram? No way ? Last weekend me and my friends grab like 2 Kg with no effort at all, at the beach near my town and eaten them all. They are millions here. Thanks snort! Thanks to you I’ll start a business!

Sorry for the buzz kill, but it's written perceves, doens't matter if it's in portuguese or english!!

#17 Both can be right. For english it would be Goose barnacle. And the english wiki said:

In Portugal and Spain, they are a widely consumed and expensive delicacy known as percebes. Percebes are harvested commercially in the northern coast, mainly in Galicia, and are also imported from overseas, particularly from Morocco and Canada.

Perceves is more likely used in portoguese, but both writings are correct
