NETTING OF 8CHNAPPER (To the Editor) Sir,-Some weeks ago Mr W. 'J. Abbott made statements to the effect that the use of large nets ruined the spawn and spawning grounds of schnapper. I, as an enthusiastic angler, would like to put the follow ing questions to Mr Abbott, who states that "'It is a well-known fact that schnapper come into the bay to spawn." I and hundreds of others await Mr Abbott's replies through the medium of your paper: What kind of spawn does .the schnapper, black bream and tarwhine (all of which belong to the bream family) shed? Does Mr Abbott really know of any certain spawning grounds of the schnapper in Port Phillip, and where Il their location? Is it a fact that achnapper spawn is heavy and semi-opaque? Does the schnapper shed its spawn in deep or. shallow :water? Is the mature spawn in "bunch" form, or, in other words, do the eggs adhere in masses? Why and in what way, does any net injure or .destroy schnapper spawn? Hoping for some enlightenment upon this ma...
