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.
|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.|
