The makaha (fixed sluice gate) is unique to Hawaiian aquaculture. It was designed to allow small fish and marine animals through the posts while preventing larger fish from exiting. Today, hardwoods such as guava and kiawe are used for the posts, but in ancient times, either ohia or lama, two sacred native trees, were used. This makaha is part of Waipuhi Fishpond.
