Ancient fish trap found in Australian creek

Archaeologist David Guilfoyle said the rock structure harnessed the natural tidal cycles of the estuary by trapping fish as they moved in and out with the tides.
“It is difficult to determine how long these traps have been used, but we guess at least over the last 500 to 1000 years,” he said.
Similar rock structures have recently been found elsewhere in the South West, including Albany.
