There are few people who fully real ize the benefits to be derived from fish culture, and estimate its value from a practical standpoint I find there are many who have read considerably on the subject, and have a fair conception so far as can be gained by reading, but who, never having seen a practical illustration of fish culture, are edu cated only so far as their imagination has shaped the scheme in their mind. I have thought of it so much, written about it so much, and talked about it so much and have had so much literature on the subject placed before me, that it seems to me that every body ought to have a pretty clear idea of what the artificial propagation of fish is; but of course in this I am mistaken, and it is not strange that I should be.
