Cockle Hand Gathering

Cockle Hand Gathering

The main gear used to harvest cockles commercially is the cockle rake, comprising a pole and frame with a net attached. These are used in the swash zone.  Cockle nets may also be used.  Fishers use their feet to shuffle and dislodge cockles in the sand of the swash zone and then use the net to collect the cockles as they are moved by the swash.
