Plan of biological raft used at Monomoy Point for growth experiments and spat collecting. The raft, 20 feet long by 10 feet wide, provided with a central well and four trap-doors, was anchored to the Powder Hole in 20 feet of water. Wire cages and wooden boxes were suspended at various depths from the raft. Many kinds of mollusks were caught and raised in these spat boxes. The raft proved particularly useful in the study of the post-embryonic life history, as the scallops 'set' in large numbers on the boxes, cages and ropes, where specimens could be obtained in all stages of development for laboratory examination. Also, many interesting growth experiments upon the quahaug, scallop and clam were conducted in sand boxes

Largest seine in the world, This seine, operated for shad and alewives at Stony Point, Virginia, on the Potomac River, was the longest net of the kind. The net proper was 9,600 feet in length, and the hauling ropes at the ends were 22,400 feet long, giving 32,000 feet as the total sweep of the seine, only one end of which shows in the illustration. The seine was hauled by steam power and the labor of 80 men, and was drawn twice daily, at ebb tide, throughout the season. As many as 3,600 shad were taken at one haul, and 126,000 in one season, and 250,000 alewives were caught at one time. Recently the season's yield of shad fell to 3,000 and the fishery was consequently discontinued in 1905 after having been carried on for a century. This seine was a source of eggs for the Bureau's shad hatchery on this river
