This typical offshore reef is a very rich source of a wide variety of seafoods, "free for the gathering."
A good stretch of shoreline for clam digging and shellfishing.

Cockle clams can be dug with a shovel, hoe, or rake.
Legal-sized cockle clams fill the bucket very fast and are delicious when steamed.
Measure the clams you dig, keep only those that are legal, and abide by all local regulations when harvesting shellfish.
