Salcombe Harbour Authority has posted on social media to remind people not to touch the shellfish boxes in the harbour. 

Salcombe Harbour Authority posted a photo of five young people standing on or holding onto a shellfish box in the middle of the harbour (with their identities obscured with shellfish emojis), reminding people to stay safe and respectful in the harbour. 

They posted: "With the fantastic weather we have been having it is no wonder everyone is keen to get in the sea. Please be aware that whilst we encourage you to safely enjoy the water in proximity to the beaches the harbour is a very busy place and swimming out into any channel is very dangerous.

"The partially submerged wooden boxes moored in certain areas of the harbour are not for swimming to, diving from or sunbathing on. Theses are fishermen’s shellfish boxes with valuable catch inside, they are private property and must not be used in any way. We kindly suggest you do not attract the attention of an angry fisherman!

"Thank you for your attention, Salcombe Harbour Authority."
