SUPPLEMENT TO PART X (RELATING TO THE FISHERY AT NEWFOUNDLAND AND ON THE COAST OF LABRADOR.)
EXTRACT FROM “ AMONG THE DEEP SEA FISHERS.”
DR. GRENFELL'S LOG.
The poor schooner men waiting to get down North for their summer's “ fare of fish,” the bread and butter of their families, how anxious they too must be. We know the ice must be literally impassable or they would be down here. Meanwhile, the fish (that is the cod, the herring, the salmon, the capelin and the flat-fish) have all returned, almost on the exact day. The salmon arrived June 18th last year and June 17th this year.
