Explorer Alfred Russel Wallace described sea cucumber as, "looking like sausages which have been rolled in mud and then thrown up the chimney…" Now, we're not saying that they're good-looking things, but the humble sea cucumber has a far grander history and exceptional skin-transforming abilities that by far surpass such a description.
To the indigenous, ocean tribes of Northern Australia, particularly Arnhem Land (then, 'Marege') and the Kimberley Coast ('Kayu Jawa'), sea cucumber was a valuable source of food and medicine, as well as a key product in trade in what has been called "Australia's first modern industry".
Large quantities were collected and then traded by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and China became their biggest partner in purchasing this Australian resource. Considered an aphrodisiac (Oh la la!) and nutrient-filled delicacy, the sea cucumber was plentiful and made a significant impact on the development of intercultural relations within South East Asia.
