Menhaden Fishing Industry
Has Grown Wonderfully
The menhaden fishing industry,
which has shown such enormous prof
its and development in North Caro
lina, especially duirng the past few
years, is perhaps 'today one of the
largest industries of the Southern
This is perhaps due to the increased
Ldemand for fertilizer as well as the
?many new uses found for fish oil.
especially in manufacturing of soap,
munitions, etc. ,
The taking of menhaden for fertil
izer purposes dates back to the early
settlers, who first placed them on the
ground as whole fish and in many in
stances planted them into each "hill"
Xof corn. Later, when the value of the
oil was discovered, it . was extracted
by placing the fish in casks, covering
them with water and compressing
with weighted boards.
The first process of cooking was by
the use of kettles; later this was su-

Oif Fare Rertmded of $2.00 and Over
perceded by steam cooking. The
first steam factory was established
in Rhode Island about 1841 and the
first menhaden factory in North Car
olina was built on Harker's Island,
n Core Sound, in 1865. This indus
try has gradually developed into the
use of large steamers and more mod
ern methods of cooking and pressing'
the fish until we have now perhaps
50 menhaden factories distributed on
our coast from Maine to California.
The largest number of plants are
located on the Chesapeake Bay at
Reedville, Va., where most of the Vir
ginia plants are located. In point of
production, however, North Carolina
in -the past few years has perhaps
produced more fish fertilizer and fish
oil than all the rest of the plants on
the coast. f
The menhaden fishing industry on
Chesapeake Bay, especially at Reeds-
ville, Va., has proven the most profit
able industry in that sectio, many of
the plants payings-annual dividends of
from 30 to 125 per cent. Reedsville,
Va., with a population of perhaps less
than 500 a few years ago, was accred
ited by the United States government
as having the largest bank deposits of
any town in the United States for its
size. It is conceded that over 90 par
cent, of these deposits was the ?e
sult of the menhaden fish industries.
There are three menhaden fish fac
tories near Wilmington and they toll
undoubtedly prove to be one of the
most beneficial enterprises here in
the way of giving employment to men
to whom good wages are paid and ma
Farmers are finding it very hard to
secure fertilizer with an ample sup
ply of ammonia and phosphoric acid,
and these menhaden fish factories wii!
help solve this problem.
