These were much bigger than 50mm and the structure is covered to, I've been asked so many times by passengers if they can gather some but I don't want to cook up something that will give them food poisoning or worse.

Is it ok just to pick them off and cook them or will the rusting metal have caused any change to the flavour?
They will contain plenty iron then.... which I believe is good for you

Dave's rules of survival(1) dont eat anything if you are wondering, even just a little bit, if it may cause you to wake up dead in the morning!
Exemptions of course include donner kebabs, burgers, and other such delicacies eaten on the way back from the pub whilst in a slightly intoxicated state of invincibility.
Our mussel feasts have been fine, a bit gritty sometimes thru inadequate flushing in fresh water. Only once did our most prolific mussel scoffer feel a tad unwell the next day and we havent bothered since. Still I'm up there next week and will have a boil up and see if I make it thru til Friday. But as said they come from miles offshore in an area with a massive tidal range and little traffic.

Sh1t & decomposing organic matter is the bottom of the food chain. Nobody bats an eye when we use it to grow veg & fruit. We are all made of sh1t, some more than others I dont have an issue with shellfish feeding on organics, it's the heavy metals & non-organics that worry me, PCBs anyone
