OK, so maybe you won’t find Sponge Bob at home here.  But these sea pineapples, a type of tunicate or sea squirt, did come from several hundred feet under the sea (and are little muddier to show for it).  This little crop was collected during a government trawl survey off of southern California.  These squirts are definitely juicy, if not fruity!
