OUR ADVICE FOR THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE
---Do--- ---Don't---
  • Make sure you are aware of tide times and the weather.
  • Find out about the regulations: authorised equipment, minimum landing sizes, catch limits...
  •  Make sure someone knows where you are and when you will return and, if possible, take a mobile phone ( sea rescue 196 - emergency services 112)
  • Never collect more than you are likely to consume.
  • Don’t remove young mussels from their rocks and don’t collect anything from the sand; it won’t be fit for consumption.
  • Do not keep your harvest for more than 24h.
  • Certain habitats are very fragile, so never fish in unauthorised areas.
