THE SCARCITY OF DEE SALMON.

THE SCARCITY OF DEE SALMON. Sir,—I see that an assertion has been made that the Dee Fishery Board has contributed through mismanagement to the present scarcity of salmon. Of course we have had dry seasons, but we see the chief cause of scarcity through the two last winters being so very mild and open. It is also said the river is over- netted. This is not so. Let us compare the few salmon that have been caught this season with the millions of salmon fry that leave our river every season, and take a percentage. I fail to see where the over-netting comes in. We think the scarceness is caused by the abundance of ravenous fish that infest the coast, and prey on the salmon as they enter our river. Our experience for 39 years tells us that a hard frosty winter is followed by a successful summer. It is plain that a keen winter must drive the ravenous fish out to sea, and so give the salmon a better chance to get in shore towards our rivers. We think also that if more was done to destroy the enemies of salmon that infest the spawning beds and the mouths of rivers, greater good would be done than by talking of over-netting, as a more plentiful supply is more beneficial to the public as an article of food. It is the duty of fishery boards to provide as plentiful a supply to the public as possible.—Yours, &c., JOHN BUCKLEY. Heswall. ♦
