Cocklers are back in resort...
by Natasha Young

COCKLE pickers returned to Southport on Monday (November 5), as the beds on the Ribble estuary re-opened.

Permit holders began accessing the South Gut and Penfold cockle fishery along Marshside's Haul Road track, after the North West Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (NWIFCA) allowed the beds to opened.

The fishery is expected to be open throughout November.
