Frozen Fish


THAT fish suffer, when imprisoned under a covering of ice in comparatively shallow ponds or lakes, goes without saying. But do they necessarily die when inclosed for lengthened periods in solid ice? My own opinion is that the latter condition is far less injurious to them than the former. It is a question of importance, for it concerns the conditions under which fish probably exist in comparatively shallow waters in high latitudes.
