Coastline

Life around our shores!

Literally just meters away, our very own coastline has a fascinating range of diverse creatures. Lobsters, Rays, Starfish, even Seahorses can be found in the waters around the British Isles.

For example, Leigh-on-Sea is famous for Shellfish, and Oyster farms can be found off the River Crouch at Paglesham

A sample of species

Edible Crab (Cancer Pagurus) probably didn’t come up with it’s own name… It’s the largest of the common crab species in Britain. A large female can lay over 3 MILLION eggs.

Lesser Spotted Dogfish (Scyliorhinus Canicula) is actually a type of harmless shark! The are mainly bottom-living and feed on molluscs, crustaceans and small bottom-dwelling fish.
