Down here in S Devon they make a thing out of the mussels being local (River Avon for one) and they're delicious! Sadly I am now allergic to Oysters otherwise I'd be eating those as well!

I'd eat them from down your way too-it's somewhat cleaner than the Solent.

They are sold. Shop price is 15 a kilo - a lot go to France . It's a big thing here (collecting them, piddling in the bucket and sending them to France...)

One of the advantages of living on the shore of a sea loch in the West Highlands is I can nip down to the bottom of the garden and pick Mussels, Oysters and Brown Crabs for the dinner.

for Winkles, not mussels. Winklepickin' is big business.

Sea urchins (purple) are in big demand too.
