Much doubt having been expressed by scientific men in
England as to whether young fish have really been reared
in this colony from one species of migratory salmon, viz.,
the salmon trout (Salmo trutta), without allowing the parent
fish first to make the usual journey to sea, it was thought
advisable to send one of such parent fish (which had twice
deposited ova) to England, for the examination of all persons
interested in that which will probably prove the most useful
discovery in pisciculture yet made.
