Description

Excerpt from Report for 1894 on the Lancashire Sea-Fisheries Laboratory at the University of Liverpool This, the Third Annual Report Of the Lancashire Sea Fisheries Laboratory, contains an account of the work done during the past year, 1894, in endeavouring to carry out the scheme of investigations drawn up by Prof. Herdman when the Laboratory was established in 1892, and is necessarily, to a considerable extent, a continuation Of what has already been published in the two former Reports. One new line of enquiry this year is the investigation, by means of drift bottles, Of the tidal and other currents in the Irish Sea, which would affect the distribution Of small floating bodies, such as fish eggs and surface food (see below). Part of the work has been carried out on board the fisheries steamer John Fell, while making the usual periodical visits to the in-shore and off-shore fishing grounds Of the district and adjacent parts Of the Irish Sea. The fishery officers, under the Committee, have kept us supplied with material from their respective districts. Owing to _the resignation of two fishery Officers, this part of the work has been somewhat interrupted during the latter part of the year, and, consequently, the number of small fish sent in for examination has been rather less than in former years.
