Analysis of archaeological animal remains from the subsidiary inland port of Trinidad de Nosotros documents how animals were used as dietary, raw material, ritual, and prestige goods from Preclassic (ca. 800 B.C.- A.D. 250) through Postclassic (A.D. 1000-1500) times. Based on the site's lacustrine location, specific attention is given to the contribution of aquatic resources to the prehistoric Maya diet, and what impact archaeological excavation and recovery methods have on our interpretation of aquatic resource use. Temporal and spatial variation in the zooarchaeological record at Trinidad de Nosotros also provides insights into patterns of elite animal use and the site's economic status and role within the larger Motul polity during the Late Classic period.
