Spring tides

At low tide, there’s unlimited marine life to discover in the foreshore. Go shrimping, crabbing or cockle fishing as a family. These fun activities are perfect for all ages but be sure to be respectful of nature!

To make sure that the activity stays fun:

  • Be aware of the weather and the tides.
  • Don’t go to an unfamiliar place alone.
  • Bring a watch and a telephone (Number for CROSS emergency services – 196).
  • Find out the local sanitary rankings and fishing restrictions.
  • Bring a small ruler.
  • Sort through your catch as you go.
  • Only take what you will eat.
  • Use respectful tools.
  • Put back any rocks that you move.

By following these good practices, you’ll protect the resources and the marine life while ensuring your safety. This way, everyone can enjoy the ocean for a long time to come
