In Part 1 of these Observations (Scott, 1936), devoted to a taxo-
nomic survey of the family, with descriptions of new species, the hope was
expressed that in succeeding parts it would be found possible to
consider the Tasmanian Galaxiidae described prior to 1936. The
present contribution contains some biometric observations on the
widely distributed Galaxias (Galaxias) attenuatus (Jenyns), relating
Chiefly to frequency distribution of standard length, including seasonal
variations; rate of growth; variation of proportions with growth;
growth-gradients; extra-aqueous viability. Non-metrical observations
on this species are reserved for a subsequent communication.
