The noun fish is the subject of the sentence, "Thousands of years ago, fish were caught in nets and traps."

In the sentence "Thousands of years ago fish were caught in nets and traps", considered word-by-word, "thousands", "years". "fish", "nets", and "traps" are the nouns; the only verb is "were caught", the past passive voice form of "catch"; and the only adverb is "ago". Alternatively, the entire phrase "Thousands of years ago" could be considered an adverb, based on its function in the sentence. On this analysis, the only nouns would be "fish", "nets", and "traps".

The word 'in' is a preposition, a word that connects the object of the preposition (nets and traps) to the verb 'caught'.

There is not a linking verb in the sentence "Thousands of years ago, fish were caught in nets and traps."A linking verb is one that connects the subject to more information about the subject (subject complement). Example: They were happy when the plane landed after a turbulent flight. Were is the linking verb connecting the subject, they, to the subject compliment, happy.An auxiliary verb (helping verb) helps another verb complete the verb phrase. In the predicate were caught, were is an auxiliary verb.

The word 'years' is a noun, a plural noun functioning as the object of the preposition 'of'.
