Residents collect snails washed onto beach in China by Typhoon Kompasu

Residents collected snails that were washed up onto a beach by Typhoon Kompasu in southern China. Video captured in the city of Zhanjiang in Guangdong Province on October 14 shows a beach covered by a large number of Oncomelania snails and local residents collecting them to cook at home. According to a resident, it was easy for a person to collect 50 kilograms the snails per day. The snails were sold around 14 yuan to 15 yuan (£1.59-£1.7) per kilogram in the market. The video was provided by local media with permission.
