Nature volume 42, page 132 | Download Citation



THE Liverpool Salvage Association having kindly placed their s.s. Hyœna once more at the disposal of the Liverpool Marine Biology Committee, a four-days' dredging cruise was arranged and successfully carried out at Whitsuntide. The old gunboat left the Mersey on Friday, May 23, and steamed to the Menai Straits. Some of the party spent the afternoon and evening collecting on the shore at Puffin Island, off which the Hyœna was anchored for the night. On the following morning, after a few hauls of the dredge near Puffin Island, and between Penmon Point and Beaumaris, and again off Port Dinorwic, the steamer went through the straits to Carnarvon Bay, and commenced working along the southern coast of Anglesey.
