Everything you need to know about the regulations governing the practice of fishing on foot in the Cœur de Nacre

Armed with boots, a landing net and a basket, set off in search of shellfish and crustaceans!

When the sea recedes, the foreshore is revealed. A vast expanse of sand, rocks and puddles appear, ideal for fishing on foot.

Our tourist offices in Courseulles-sur-Mer, Luc-sur-Mer and Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer provide you with a free booklet on fishing sizes and a ruler to measure your catch.

In order to preserve the marine fauna and flora and to ensure your safety, a few rules must be respected:

– Check the tide times,
– Respect the regulations relating to the practice of fishing on foot,
– Check the weather conditions,
– Put the stones back in their original position,
– Respect the size of the different species,
– Do not leave any waste on site.

Don’t leave any waste on the spot. Don’t forget to visit our shops, which are a real goldmine for information on fishing on the Côte de Nacre.
