Never knew that was a name of a starfish.

Patrick wanted for questioning.

Can you make sushi out of them?

You can make sushi out of anything if you're brave enough.

To those fish, they're the only thing that's real.

I have been told the thorns are poisonous, probably best not to.

Huge things, once when learning to scuba dive I came across one. Fortunately for me I had seen a helmet shell nearby(natural predator) so I picked it up and put it right next to the massive starfish.

Well so are sea urchins. And they're tasty.

It's an interesting question, any shellfish preparation experts out there?

If they have row...they could be processed. They make do with spiny urchins.
Around the "Space Coast" on the Eastern side of Florida. There's a species of shrimp "rock shrimp" that was trash shrimp for ages...shrimpers hated them because they had a superhard shell and you couldn't process them well.
Then someone invented a device that sliced and pressed off the shell. (kinda like a 1900's bean shelling machine).
And they took off in sales. And they're wonderful...they taste like little lobster instead of shrimp with a buttery sweet taste even with no seasonings. But fried in a crispy cracker crumb coating...OMG.
