Goose Neck Barnacles, also known as percebes, are a unique and highly sought-after delicacy in the seafood world. These strange-looking creatures are found clinging to rocks in the intertidal zone of the Atlantic coast, from Portugal to Norway, and are prized for their delicate flavor and unusual appearance.

In terms of appearance, Goose Neck Barnacles have a long, cylindrical stem with a bulbous, triangular head that resembles a bird's neck or a dinosaur's horn. The outer layer of the stem is covered in a tough, dark membrane that must be removed before cooking, revealing a tender, white flesh underneath.
