Shellfish Picking

Shellfish Picking

Following the tides, Locmariaquer and Saint Philibert are paradisiac spots for shellfish picking : crabs, mussels, winkles, clams…

Because the ocean is a fragile environment and its ressources are not unlimited, there are a few rules to follow : be reasonable, only pick the amount you can eat and what is allowed, respect the sizes enforced by the regulation*, put back in place the rocks and stones you lift.
* You can buy a special rule at the tourist office for 1€ to check the size of shellfish
