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.
|Additional Information:||In 1843 the Horticultural and Botanical Society of Van Diemen's Land was founded and became the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science in 1844. In 1855 its name changed to Royal Society of Tasmania for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science. In 1911 the name was shortened to Royal Society of Tasmania.|
