I am a bit rusty on distinguishing types of sea slugs, though I recall many different types in those waters. Nudibranchs is what I recall them being called in latin. I don't read or speak Kwakuitl, but the word translated into "sea slug" by George Hunt is written in Kwakuitl three ways that I see..."alasa", "alase", and "alas". George Hunt grew up on that coast so he certainly knew the sea life very well. Also, Elie Hunt recorded that "sea-slugs are only eaten in winter, when they are good. They are bad in summer."
