Abstract

In October 1905 I spent three weeks in Melbourne and vicinity, and devoted some time to collecting fishes. In this connection I have to acknowlege the kindness of the Victorian Railway Commissioners in granting me concessions over all their lines traversed. I also desire to thank Mr. C. W. Maclean, Chief Inspector of Fisheries, for much personal assistance, and permission for the use of nets in closed waters, poisons, and other methods employed in my investigations. I paid almost daily visits to the Melbourne Fish Markets and also collected on the coast, principally at Queenscliff; where I received every attention and assistance from Inspector Brady. While in Melbourne I met Mr. Joseph Gabriel, who is interested in Mollusca, and he has since kindly sent to the Trustees some small fishes, taken by means of the dredge.
