THE subject chosen for the Buckland Lectures for 1937 by Dr. T. E. Pryce-Tannatt waa appropriate, for Buckland himself was an inspector of salmon fisheries and was concerned with the question of obstructions in the courses of rivers. This book outlines the laws regarding obstructions, considers the obstructions in relation to the habits of the fish, and describes the types of fish passes in existence. The problems concerned with the choice of pass best suited for the varying circumstances are discussed, and thirty-two diagrams and photographs of the different kinds of obstructions and fish passes are given. It maintains the standard of this useful series of publications.
