Abstract

AN event of importance in the history of the acclimatisation of Salmonidæ has just recently been noted in New Zealand. For nearly sixty years New Zealand and Australia have been endeavouring to acclimatise the Atlantic salmon. (It is of interest to note that the quinnat salmon from the Californian coast is now thoroughly established in the South Island of New Zealand; recently I have identified examples from the south of the North Island.)
