THE work of the Danish naturalists on behalf of the International Commission for the Investigation of the Sea is greatly enriching our knowledge of the natural history of important sea-fishes. In “Serie Fiskeri,” Bind ii., Nos. 5–8, of the Danish “Meddelelser fra Kommissionen for Havundersøgelser,” there are several important papers by Dr. Johs. Schmidt, a naturalist well known for his discovery of the breeding-places of the common eel of European rivers.
