Page 1: What is this survey all about?

This PhD research project aims to record the true personal and heritage values associated with gathering from the seashore in Wales. 

Before you take part, it is important that you understand the purpose of this research and what it involves for you. 

We would like to know:

  • what you collect;
  • why you collect it;
  • what collecting means to you personally (ie: exercise, well-being, solitude, saves bait /food money)
  • if you think your activity has a heritage or cultural value that should not be forgotten.

We will NOT ask you

  • where or when you collect or
  • how much money you earn from it.

The answers to these questions will be joined with the answers of others to ensure that you remain anonymous.

If you don’t like any of our questions, you can skip them. The questionnaire should take around 20-30 minutes.
