Possible no-light/low-light food sources and their method of acquisition can be listed.
- Mushrooms, fungi
- Can be cultivated, or gathered. The Field Guide to North American Mushrooms by the National Audubon Society is a great picture reference guide, with lots of information about each mushroom. Of course, its geared to N. America.
- Can be farmed, or gathered. An article on worm gatherers in southern US states explains that you get a stob (piece of wood) and hammer it into the ground. You then rasp a bit of iron along the top of the bit of wood, causing it to vibrate. This brings the worms to the surface, where they can be collected. Immerse worms in water to get them to expell the earth inside.
- Can be farmed, or fished for.
- Grubs, maggots and bugs
- Can be gathered from dead and rotting wood.
- Burrowing animals
- Moles, and other burrowers that eat worms and grubs, might survive well for some time after the pole shift.
- Snails, slugs and frogs
- Popular foods already in France. These might these be plentiful after the shift.
