Abstract

THE comments in NATURE of December 15, 1923, p. 872, on Prof. Stanley Gardiner's lecture on the above subject were read with interest. There is, indeed, much fault to be found with the operation of the fishing trade by any one of scientific training. In connexion with the statement that fishermen look askance at the mere mention of studying the plankton as a guide to placing fishing nets, however, it may be of interest to readers of NATURE to learn that plankton studies are rendering very material aid to the oyster industry in parts of the United States.
