Details

Inspired by the Fisheries Exhibition of 1883, these are articles on the natural history and culture of freshwater fish, originally published in the Saturday Review. Chapters on eels and elvers, carp and carp-culture, pike, perch and other freshwater fish. Of its time - the author believed that eels spawned in fresh water - but good well-written essays.
