Details

A very good early manual on the study of Atlantic salmon including scale-reading and much on tagged fish and the knowledge obtained from their recapture. "...from his acquaintance with the operations of the Fishery Board, Mr. Calderwood is able to speak with special authority. He traces the history of the fish from its youth up, and has most interesting chapters on the results of marking, on scales as records of a fish's journeyings, and on the effect of changes of water-temperature upon the growing fish." (Contemporary advertisment).
