Cultural site protection
Cultural fish traps hold important physical and spiritual connections to Sea Country for Aboriginal people.
There is much evidence of the use of cultural fish traps for thousands of years along the NSW coast, providing Aboriginal communities with fresh seafood and supporting cultural gatherings at important meeting places.
This project supports Aboriginal communities to protect these significant cultural sites by developing conservation plans, undertaking research and monitoring, and doing repair and maintenance.
