limpets are tasty and safe ,cook until they fall out of the shell(quite quick) scrape the "bits"off the foot and keep the foot, either chew or mince and make into soup,burger,risotto or whatever

winkles are fairly safe (ensure clean waters) boil "winkle out with a pin ,eat with or without condiments or in soup ,stew etc

sea slaters are ace ,treat like prawns .

shrimps and prawns are best netted as are the very small soup fish found in rock pools

beware whelks ,they eat critters that filter feed and sometimes concentrate biological challenges as well as chemical ones

filter feeders should only be eaten from clean waters and even then raw is a bit of a lottery .

small crabs taste better than big ones but they are either a faff or a bit crunchy

etc etc

where there is seaweed there is fishy stuff to go with it and again apart from critters from dirty water (or rotting ones)the uk spineless are non toxic unlike the tropical critters some of which are "well hard" alive or dead
