Excerpt from Frank Forester's: Fish and Fishing of the United States and British Provinces of North America North

In offering this work to the public, I have little to say, as its character speaks for itself, but to indicate the sources of the information which it contains, and to give credit to those who, by their works, letters or conversation, have aided me in its execution.

And first, I must express my sincere gratitude to my friend, Professor Agassiz, who kindly afforded me every assistance in his power, with free access to his fine library, and unrivalled collection of fishes, from which most of my drawings are taken

To my friend Mr. Perley, of St. Johns, I am indebted for much valuable and interesting information in regard to the fish and fisheries of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia; and to Mr. DeBlois, of Portland, for a communication respecting the great Trout of Sebago Lake, in Maine, which was probably a distinct variety, though the fact cannot be easily now ascertained - the noble fish being, alas! extinct.

To Mr. Yarrel's fine work on British Fishes, to Hofland's British Angler's Manual, to Richardson's Fauna Boreali Americana, to DeKay's Fishes of New York, to Soyer's Cooking Book, I thankfully record my indebtedness for extracts more or less copious.
