I have a habbit of collecting sea snails and crustaceans during low tide at the beach . Is that illegal ? Do i need a shellfish license to picking them snails off the rocks ? Some of my friends said "YES" . Just curious from the more professionals we have in this forum for precise answer . Thank you guys !!

After a little bit of searching...

Snails would be considered benthic mollusks, which make it required to have a license in order to harvest them.   They can also only be harvested in designated areas by the Bureau of Shellfisheries.

Check out Page 21 of this guide.

Remember to consult the shellfish maps to ensure that you can harvest from the beach where you are finding the snails.
