International Fishery Investigations 1


    THE results of the first two or three yea of active investigation in connection witff the general scheme of fishery research, which is being carried out in the seas around north Europe under the auspices of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea, are now being rapidly published in a series of reports issued in part by the Bureau of the International Council and in part by the authorities of the different countries participating in the international scheme. As the outcome of the work is being thus gradually brought to light, the comprehensive character of the programme becomes increasingly obvious. The remarkable scientific interest of the results obtained from what is probably the greatest and most serious attempt yet made to carry out a scientific investigation by means of international cooperation is placed beyond dispute, nor can it be doubted that the eventual practical benefit of these researches will be of even more importance and of much direct value to the fishing industry.
