Abstract

IN the review of the “Eighth Report of the Fishery Board for Scotland,” which appeared in NATURE (vol. xlii. p. 653), the reviewer, misled by the private information to which he refers, makes an inaccurate and baseless statement, reflecting upon me personally, and which I therefore crave leave at once to correct. In dealing with my report on immature fish, which, by the courtesy of the Secretary for Scotland, was placed in the hands of the delegates of the recent International Fisheries Conference, and which has already been referred to in your columns by Prof. McIntosh, F.R.S., the reviewer states: “We have certain information that the original discoveries which led to this report were made” by Mr. T. Scott; and that “it is only fair that the credit which is Mr. T. Scott's due, and which is denied him there, should be acknowledged here.”
