Abstract

ON p. 305 of the new number of the Journal of the Marine Biological Association reference is made to the difficulty of keeping young herring alive. On September 14 last I captured a number of young herring; some, which I put under circulation in salt water, were dead next morning. To kill the others I turned on a fresh-water tap into the bucket containing them. Half an hour or so later I found that, instead of being dead, they were very lively, and some which had been lying on their backs had recovered.
