Because commercial quantities of cockles at Ferryside were rare, there were no licences required to harvest them.The service uses a 6.4 metre Ribcraft semi rigid inflatable with twin 90 hp engines, and a smaller craft.Callouts average 28 a year, a number that is rising as a result of an increase in leisure craft.Originating as a landing-place on the ferry route to Llansteffan (the ferry was used by Giraldus Cambrensis in 1188), Ferryside developed as a fishing village.
