Abstract

While filing for crayfish recently, on the East Coast, I
caught a couple of so-called " Kelpfish " in the net. This
fish, belonging to the family Labridae, is a favorite bait with
fishermen for the crayfish caught in hand nets, and is found
in moderately shallow water, sometimes, and at others ia
deep pools, but always in beds of kelp. On opening the individuals
I caught I was surprised to find their stomachs full
of the small while, conical, and calcareous shells which cover
the tops and sides of rocks, which are covered at high water
