Abstract

IT is now generally recognised by those who have been interested in the question, that the inshore migration of pilchards in the western fishery area during the summer and autumn of the present year, has presented certain features, which may possibly be attributed to somewhat unusual conditions of food supply and other determining factors. It is therefore a matter of some importance to note that according to the statement of local fishermen, occasional catches of some thousands of pilchards have been made in drift nets off Brighton, Ramsgate, Deal, &c, for several months past.
