This picture shows the equipment configuration SCUBA divers can use to facilitate urchin removal.

We would blow up a tube called a surface marker buoy attached to a reel. We tie wrap a weight above the reel hook and clip some type of game bag to the reel hook. We lower the weight and game bag to teams of SCUBA divers.

When a bag is filled, a diver would pull sharply on the reel line three times as a signal for the support team in kayaks to feel up the bag. The person in the kayak unloads the urchins and sends the bag back down to the SCUBA diving team.

This configuration will allow removal of bags of urchins without the SCUBA diver needing to go to the surface. This way, divers can focus dive time on removing urchins.
