This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1879 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER XXI. THE VALUE OP SALMON FISHERIES. It is undoubtedly in the cold regions of the North that we must look for the home of the salmon. Sir John Eoss, in his Arctic explorations, found salmon so abundant that he could buy 100 lbs.' weight from the Esquimaux for a knife, and enormous quantities were consumed by this people, one having been observed by him to dispose of a stone weight at a meal. Few nations have been so highly favoured as Scotland in respect to their salmon fisheries, but unfortunately, for want of proper legislation to protect the spawning fish, the value of the fisheries has greatly diminished; and should there not be greater attention paid to this question, and sufficient protection given to the fish, there is a risk of the extinction of the salmon in some of those rivers where they formerly abounded. In Norway, salmon are also extremely abundant; and in the rivers of the Pacific seaboard of North America, the salmon fisheries are wonderfully productive, the rivers in these countries not having been closely fished till recently. The extension of railways and of rapid steam communication by sea has, by bringing the salmon rivers within reach of markets, caused that fish to become scarce, and, like the deer and other wild game, it would no doubt soon disappear altogether, unless protected by wise legislation. In a work entitled "The Salmon," by Mr. Alexander Eussel, it is stated that the annual value of three Scotch fishery districts, "the Tay, the Spey, and the twin rivers entering the sea at Aberdeen, amounts to nearly 40,000; and from the reports of the Irish Commissioners we learn that in 1862 three Irish railways conveyed 900,000 lbs. of salmon, being equal in weight and treble in value to 15,000 sheep. In...

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
