They are found on most rocky subtidal habitats in British Columbia (BC) from just below the low tide line to 130 metres (426 feet) but are common between 4 - 30 metres (13 - 90 feet). Urchins prefer rocky ground and avoid rocky areas exposed to extreme wave action and areas with sediments such as sand and mud.
