specimens of young shad, which
are the direct result of artificial
propagation. They were hatched
from eggs aititicially fertilized at
Avoca, I'.ertie county, last May,
and subsequently manipulated at
the carp ponds near Kaleigh.
December 1st, upon removing them
with other tish from one of the carp
ponds, I found that they had grown
to the length of lour and one eighth
were broad and thick,
and active. Their pre:
was not unexpected, but I was !
struck with two points, one being ;
their superior condition alter six '
months' confinement in a pond, the
other their small death rate while :
confined. Ou June 21st, I had
the jjsi, from 0ne pond put into
another, and among those trans-
ferrea wero 1)t lnole than a half
dozen .-had, then seven or eight
weeks old, too small to be easily
identified. I"ion drawing the pond
five months later, lour were found.
The conclusions which follow are
these, that artificially hatched shad

and that fry may find proper food I
ia nursery ponds, ami that a proti-
able small loss only would follow it I
l.irpo numbers were inned up for
some weeks or mouths in proper
ponds. That artificially fertilized
ova produce healthy adult shad is
tint que-t ioned by persons informed
upon thjj recent achievements ol
! fish eulturi.-ts, but there ai poisons
who, without any sufficient reason,
doubt the fact.
There were such an abundant
-had catch on the Pacific coast
during lss.i. that the fish -went
befim." so to speak. This freat
result was from the small number
lot two hundred thousand try sent
across the continent by the United
States Fish Commissioner. Their
abundam-e in a perfeci state shows
clearlv the ab-oluto proof of the
-oiindiif-s of the theory of fi-h cul
ture, and moreover, t hat fi-h may
i be used in stocking new waters as
successfully as foreign plants may
: be introduced for new crops. Over
i three-fourths of the plants cultivat
ed tor the support of man and ani
mals are imported.
The very important increase in

greater loss sustained in the natu

in the egg. both from lack of im

and enemies of nil kinds.
A large per emit, uf the shad an
nually netted from our waters are
unripe and ; no value lor hatch in
purposes, but -uflicient numbers art,'
ripe to permit extensive operations,
and since the methods have Uen
simplified at least a hundred fisher
men's aid cai lie availed of, during
next spring only, in collecting this
ripe product which is now wholly
unproductive. A iipe tish is sold
and her roe eaten or thrown away.
If her eggs arc La ken and hatched
artificially, they produce ten to lit
teen, sometimes sixty thousand fry.
As there is no means of ascertain
ing the exae' catch of fish in our
waters, and Tis t he vai i at ion in rain
fall and temperatures affect the
movements of the tisli.it has been
impos-ible to make any very defi
nite figures on the catch and its en
hancement. In view, however, ot
the immense yield to plantings on 1
the Potomac, Alabama and Pacific
rivers, 1 believe that I have given
the Fish Commission insufficient
credit for its benefits. Had if not

that the catch would not have been '

this fact recently established bv I
Col. Mel) onald the cold rains ot

j It is now definitely known that as
'soon as the rivers, bays or sounds
reach a temperature higher than
that of Hie ocean the shad come in

This movement begins in January

now n more
thousand taken by parties in a

town ot Wilmington as many as a i
hundred cart loads of such fish are
sometimes found on the market
during a single day.
On this market shrimp to the;
value of s.-.iiooo or more are sold!
annually. They are among the
choicest of articles, being a great I
delicacy. Of late Mrs. K. Warren!
has been engaged pickling them, j
and is successful not only in making
a delicious preparation, but also in
realizing ready sales at paying
prices. In a few years it is certain
that .-he will be able to show a
great increase in production to the
demand she makes for them.

here, become scarcer as you proceed
