THE DEE MUSSEL INDUSTRY. « The mussel season in the Dee opened on Wednesday. Our Park gate correspondent writes: For several weeks active preparations have been made here for the I first,' the small boats used for the purpose being thoroughly overhauled and re-coated, and the gigantic mussel rakes prepared for action. At midnight on the Tuesday the fishermen were all astir, and most of them sailed away before two a.m., lying off the mussel beds at Dawpool until it was light enough to work. Most of them made good bags, and their return in the bright sunshine at noon presented an interesting and picturesque spectacle, and for several hours carts were busy taking bags from the boats to fche railway station. There were about 90 bosfts out, and about 70 of these hailed from Parkgate and Heswall, the majority of the others coming from Connah's Quay. Some 420 bags were despatched from Parkgate alone as the result of the morning's work. The mussels are very fine, but the fishermen express the opinion that the beds will soon be exhausted.
