Presentation by Dr. Jim Brown: Fishtraps.

Stationary fishtraps in river rapids were outlawed by Alabama statute as early as 1920 — but are such an efficient way to catch fish that they persisted for decades more just the other side of the law.  In 1981 Jim Brown found one up on the Mulberry near Arkadelphia, did an oral interview with its most personable owner, and then did some research on both the tradition and the State Game & Fish laws that challenged the practice.  He’s still fascinated by the whole thing, but has instructions to keep it short.ww
