The Marine Biological Station and a Coast Survey


ALLOW me to say in reference to your article advocating a Biological survey of the British coasts, that you are quite right in supposing that such a survey falls within the scope of this Association. As a first step in the direction of such a survey the Association proposes to establish a dredging station and observatory on the south coast. Later it will, it is to be hoped, be able to establish or to cooperate in the establishment of additional dredging stations on various parts of the coasts of the United Kingdom, and thus gradually complete a thorough (not a superficial) survey such as is needed. The Association will no doubt seek the aid of the Government when the proper time for doing so arrives.
