European marine features where the activities takes place

The location of shoreline angling will be dictated by access routes to the area and the distance equipment has to be carried. In addition, areas which traditionally have good 'catching' rates are also attractive to anglers. Local marine features play a part in the choice of location for shoreline fishing as they can be an important determinant in the size of the fish population.

The areas in which sea fishing take place will be determined by the requirements of the craft to access and operate over certain marine features as well as the fish populations in different areas.
