Abstract

THE herring is our most, important food fish. Workers in different countries are approaching the problems connected with it from different points of view. The accumulation of data tends towards both simplification and complication. It is possible that increased hydrographic knowledge may assist us to foretell, to some extent, the nature of the fishery and that applied science may score a success, but the understanding of the subject is in the realms of pure science. The three papers specified above all help, in varying extent, to increase our knowledge.
