Deep-Sea Fishes of the Northern Atlantic

Article metrics


THE examination of the deep-sea fishes which have been collected by means of the dredge or trawl during the last twenty-five years, has now been almost completed; at least the results of this examination, as far as it has gone, are now before us, and form the most interesting and attractive portion of the ichthyological literature of our time. The harvest reaped by the various expeditions, surveys, and private enterprises, which have been fitted out to explore the mysteries of the sea, has far exceeded the most sanguine expectations, and it is satisfactory to find that the six or seven volumes devoted to ichthyology have been placed before the public in a style and with a wealth of illustration worthy of the interest attached to the subject.
