A stake net is a form of net for catching fish. It consists of a sheet of network stretched on stakes fixed into the ground, generally in rivers or where the sea ebbs and flows, for entangling and catching the fish. A stake net has a long vertical wall of netting held up by a line of strong wooden poles sticking up wards from the beach, running at right angles to the shoreline , often several hundred metres long,that is intended to interrupt the natural swim of the fish and direct them along it away from the shore and into a series of traps.
