Abstract

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.
