a fish trap is a kind of cage used for fishing. it may has the form of a fishing weir, a crab trap or a lobster trap. a typical trap might consist of a frame of thick steel wire in the shape of heart with chicken wire stretch around it

a brick's utilized by ps...
the mesh wraps around the frame and then tapers into the inside of the trap. when a fish swims inside through this opening, it cannot get out, as the chicken wire opening bends back into its original narrowness. popularly, traps are constructed of wood and fiber

the manner in which fish traps are used depends on local conditions and the behaviour of the local fish. for example, a fish trap might be placed in shallow water near rocks where pikes like to lie. if placed correctly, traps can be very effective

it is usually not necessary to check the trap daily, since the fish remain alive inside the trap, relatively unhurt. hence, the trap also allows for the release of undersized fish as per fishing regulations
