Abstract

On the 8th day of February last the ship Lincolnshire left
Plymouth bound for Melbourne, having on board about
103,000 salmon and 15,000 sea trout ova stowed in an icehouse
of rather larger capacity, but of much the same construction
as that built in the ship Norfolk for the same purpose
two years ago. The whole of the arrangements for
shipping were superintended by Mr. James A. Youl, who again
exhibited the determined zeal upon which so much depended
in the former experiment. The method of packing the ova in
the boxes, and the boxes in the ice-house, has been so thoroughly
explained to the Fellows of this Society in the account
given of the former experiment that I need not again give the
details. After a rather long passage of 79 days, the Lincolnshire
arrived in Hobson's Bay, on the 30th of April last, the
ova and ice were at once transhipped to the steamship Victoria,
again most liberally placed at the disposal of the Tasmanian
Salmon Commissioners by the Victorian Government,
and arrived in the Derwent on the 4th May, and by 8 p.m. on
the following day the last of the ova were placed in the hatching
boxes at the Plenty, the water, by the help of the remaining
ice, being reduced to 4.5 Fahr.
