During preparation of these guidelines,
a detailed review was undertaken of those species
that may be targeted for collection from the intertidal
of rocky and sediment shores in the British Isles.
The Appendix briefly introduces, in taxonomic order, those
species that are harvested in the UK, whether for
bait or for human consumption and for commercial
and non-commercial purposes. This section lists
those species that are most commonly taken and therefore
most likely to be exploited within marine SACs.
The legal status of shoreline species
and their utilisation (for bait or food and personal
or commercial use) is also briefly reviewed in this
