Probably a bit late for a reply now but you shoul invest in a good foraging book, there's lots of shoreline plants etc that you don't get anywhere else, stuff like sea beet, sea kale, wild cabbage, rock samphire and marsh samphire for starters, various seaweeds, also seafood, crabs, mussels, clams, cockles, razor clams etc

River cottage handbook No.5 (Edible seashore) by John Wright, is both informative and an entertaining read.
