Abstract

The object, of this paper is to attract attention to the important subject of oyster farming, as well as to induce thoughtfulness in the minds of the public on the subject of fisheries in general. The excellent natural position of Tasmania as regards climate, its numerous small ports and rivers, the fact of its being an island and a large proportion of its inhabitants likely to become maritime ; all these circumstances tend to the conclusion that Tasmania will in the future largely not only consume fish itself, but supply the Australian markets with that most wholesome of food.
