Abstract

I have now to report that the hatching of the last batch of ova is complete, and that the young fish are progressing most favorably. Mr. Ramsbottom counted those which hatched from the salmon ova up to 5,000, and estimates the remainder at about 1,000, making 6,000 in all. The salmon trout safely hatched he estimates at about 1,000.
