Implements in Use in the Fishery
This style of basket rake is used at Edgartown and Nantucket. The whole rake is made of iron, no netting being required, as thin iron wires 1/3 of an inch apart encircle lengthwise the entire basket, preventing the escape of any marketable quahaugs, while at the same time allowing mud and sand to wash out. This rake has 16 steel teeth, 1 1/2 inches long, fitted at intervals of 1 inch on the scraping bar. The depth of the basket is about 8 inches. Short poles not exceeding 30 feet in length are used, as the raking is carried on in water which does not exceed 25 feet in depth. Only the iron framework of the rake is shown.
Claw Quahaug Rake.
--This rake varies greatly in size and length. Its use is chiefly confined to Nantucket. The general style has a handle 6 feet long, while the iron part, in the form of a claw or talon, with prongs 1 inch apart, is 10 inches wide. A heavier rake, as here shown, us sometimes used in the deeper water.
Type of basked rake used for deep water quahauging on Cape Cod. It consists of an iron framework, forming a curved bowl, the under-edge of which is set with thin steel teeth varying in length from 2 to 4 inches, though usually 2 1/2 inch teeth are preferred. Over the bowl of this rake, which is strengthened by side and cross pieces of iron, is fitted a twine net, which, like the net of a scallop dredge, drags behind the framework. An average rake has from 19 to 21 teeth and weighs from 15 to 20 pounds.
Basket rake covered with fine meshed wire netting, used at New Bedford and Fairhaven in the capture of the small seed quahaugs in the Acushnet River.

Heart of early Cook Inlet Salmon Trap. Bottom under entire trap was bare at low tide, and all fish had to be removed between tides to prevent trap from being washed away. While these traps appear primitive and flimsy as compared with those of today, one such trap used by the Kasilof Cannery from 1882 to 1892 frequently furnished salmon to keep two fillers busy for 19 consecutive days
Original type of Salmon Trap on Cook Inlet, Alaska, built by F. P. Kendall for the Cutting Packing Company in 1882, in connection with the first salmon cannery in that district. Such traps were driven by hand at low tide, the upper poles being spliced to those beneath
