good question,:clap3: i fish catch and release as i dont like the taste of most fish so a bag of edible shellfish would be welcome for the pot,like andrewbrogar i would welcome any info on places around scotland where you could collect shell fish for human(my) consumption,i collect a lot from pease bay in the summer and im still here to talk about it so it must be ok.........tight lines.does anyone no any good mussels beaches for the pot THNX Andy:g:
i have eaten the ones out of loch leven for years and i am still around so they cant be bad also etive is very good as pelamid says they are very gritty if you get them by sand but the ones higher up the tideline are okMussels in Loch Etive are fit to eat. They are farmed there and the wild ones are good. Try to pick the ones at the higher levels of the tideline off the rocks.
Those lower down close to sand can be very gritty.
