9781330243077: The Natural History of the Salmon: As Ascertained by the Recent Experiments; In the Artificial Spawning and Hatching of the Ova and Rearing of the Fry, at Stormontfield, on the Tay (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Natural History of the Salmon: As Ascertained by the Recent Experiments; In the Artificial Spawning and Hatching of the Ova and Rearing of the Fry, at Stormontfield, on the Tay

The writer of these pages had his attention first attracted to this subject by the experiments of Mr Shaw of Drumlanrig - from 1833 to 1838. Previous to that time, with very few exceptions the whole of those persons who were connected with the salmon fisheries believed that the parrs, which are so numerous in all salmon rivers and streams, were a species of fish (sui generis), and which never attained a larger size than seven or eight inches; the principal use of which fish was to afford sport to juvenile anglers, and to serve for bait in the capture of larger fish by more advanced "Waltons."
