Abstract

The apparatus in which the Salmon ova were deposited
was placed between decks and was of two kinds—one hung
on gimbals in the same manner as a mariner's compass, the
other suspended on the principle of an ordinary swinging
tray. Both were of wood,—the gimbal apparatus consisted
of three shallow square boxes, one resting on the other, that
on the top being the smallest and was fitted with trays, the
bottoms of which were formed of parallel glass rods upon
which the Ova were placed. The suspended apparatus
consisted of a pyramid formed by three shallow square boxes
placed one above the other in such a manner as to leave
spaces between them, the lowest being four feet square, the
bottoms of the trays in this being formed of perforated pure
tin, on which rested one inch of gravel and in and upon the
gravel the Ova were deposited. The suspended apparatus was
varnished under the superintendence of Professor Pepper,
Chemical Lecturer at the Polytechnic, the other by the
Carpenter with common shell-lac varnish.
