Abstract

Since our last meeting, namely, on 19th October last, the handsome fish, now exhibited, was taken by a seine net in lower Sandy Bay. This specimen, though rather larger, is in every minute particular identical with that sent to Dr. Giinther early in 1870, and by him pronounced to present all the characters by which the true salmon (Salmo salar) is distinguishable from its nearest allies. Of course all the arguments used to prove that the fish of 1870 was bred in the colony, and could not have been the produce of an English egg, apply with much more force to the present specimen.
