Abstract

To the fishermen and others I am greatly assisted in getting together what I hope will soon be a fairly complete collection of all the known fishes inhabiting Tasmanian waters. During the past two years several additions hitherto unrecorded in Mr. R. M. Johnston's valuable catalogue of the Tasmanian fishes, published in 1880, have been brought to the Museum. The three specimens on the table belong to a genus new to our waters. Mr. W. L. Boyes, to whom the Museum is greatly indebted for several rare specimens added to the collection, captured these fine examples at George's Bay.
