Sea Fisheries

Article metrics


As an enthusiastic amateur sea-fisher some twenty years ago on the Canadian coast of what the Americans call the “herring-pond,” perhaps you will allow me to make a remark or two on Mr. Holdsworth's letter in NATURE, vol. xv., p. 135. Long absence from that happy hunting-ground, has not beclouded my memory, for I often in imagination fight again my battles with halibut and skate, lobster and cod, and the words “sea fisheries” have not altogether lost their charm; but I confess I wholly overlooked Prof. Newton's interesting letter on the subject, and turned back the file of NATURE and read the letter in connection with Mr. Holdsworth's. The theory of the former appears to me to be the correct one; the Atlantic sea fishery is being gradually played out.
