FISH IN CARMARTHEN" BAY. I Sir Charles Philipps presided over a mcei.fnt? of the Milford Haven Sea Fl Cotmuittet* at Haverfordwest. In his report- Captain Thomas stated that the inshore fishing within the dist/ict bad been rather inditforent, prin- cipally owing to the continuous stormy weather causing heavy ground seas alfccting the shallow waters of the bays very disastrously. The lobster fishing only commenced a short time, the heavy ground seas had feriousiy crippled many of the men already by the loss of gear. The mussel season had closed, and the gatherers had injured tbcrusel ves by over- supplying their markets. The same might be said of the ccckle gatherers. Ground fish, such as sole, plaice, flounders &c. were now small in Carmarthen Bay, but plentiful within the shallows of the bay and the estuaries of the rivers, proving the value of the bay and the estuaries as nursaries for supplying the outer trawing grounds with fish in such quant- ities as to induce the very large fleet of South Coast first-class trawlers to trawl the bay, all these boats afterwards landing their catches in Milford Haven or Swansea. He proposed shortly to put on suitable ground in parts of tho district a quantity of small cockles. Pro- bably they would be of some benefit in drawing plaice and other ground fish, which fed on small shell fish.
