Enjoy your visit to the shore, but please take care to leave the natural habitat as you found it. The coastal environment is disturbed by the presence of man; over-exploitation can destroy the fauna permanently.
Cause as little disturbance as possible.
Always return rocks to the exact position and the same
way up as they were found.
Collection of live animals. shellfish etc., should be kept to
The coast can be a dangerous place. Seaweeds are slippery. It is easy to have an accident when crossing difficult terrain.
BEWARE OF THE INCOMING TIDE!
National laws and bye-laws cover the sizes and numbers of fish, crabs, lobsters and other shellfish which can be landed.
Collection is prohibited during certain months of the year.
