I grew up in St. Andrews, NB until I was about 6, and spent a part of most summers there growing up.  The herring fishery has always been an important part of the economy for towns along the Bay of Fundy, and St. Andrews has always had several herring weirs just off the beach.

The Google Earth imagery for Wales must be a lot more detailed than my old hometown because researchers have discovered the remains of a 1000-year old fishing weir just off of a Welsh beach using Google Earth.

I can barely see the wharf in St. Andrews on Google Earth.  Maybe Dick Cheney has bought a summer home.
