Can you ID this tool?

This is clearly a hands tool and made of wood, but I guess not a woodworking tool. Any ideas? Saw it at a garage sale. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1445011014.436028.jpg

I think it's an agricultural tool for chopping macaroni as it comes up out of the ground.

It is only a guess, but it appears to be a sand hoe that is used to separate sand from beach debris. Be safe.

My first reaction was that the tool was used for stirring/mixing something wet, the holes adding to the turbulence. Many kinds of commercial kitchen prep spoons have holes or slots in them, also to reduce splashing.

Sand crab catcher. Needs metal mesh on the bottom to work properly.

That's great, thank you. With "Assisted Migrant" passage, Australia rapidly built up quite a population of southern europeans. Maybe 1972, 1973? I forget. Anyway, the Australian spaghetti crop grew straight up out of short, lush green, leafy plants. Lots of TV file footage to show a good crop. The TV broadcaster went on to say and show that there had been a terrible frost = all the spaghetti was lying limp all over the field = crop failure!

Well, The grocery store shelves were empty in less than 24 hrs in panic shopping.
The date? April 01.
