Cowichan salmon weir

mage of three individuals standing on the platform of a fishing weir on the Cowichan River, holding spears. A similar image is printed on page 15 of Carter's book "From History's Locker," with the caption: "Salmon weir on the Cowichan river, the native people continue a very ancient form of spear fishing for migrating salmon. The weir is not a trap but merely a means to slow the fish on the way up the river."
