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.
