Whitebait Stands

No architectural details here but interesting structures.   

These are three of the hundreds of whitebait stands on the Mokau River in New Zealand. 
Whitebait are the juvenile stage of five different fish.   Whitebaiting is a very popular pastime.  In our area the season runs from August 15 and finishes November 30th.  Whitebaiters sit for hours on these stands with large nets in the water to catch these little fish.  They are considered a delicacy.
