Tauredophidium hextii, from the Bay of Bengal, 1310 fatghoms. The eres are completely atrophied, and their sockets, which are filled with connective-tissue, are entirely hidden beneath the thick, scaly skin. The long, stout ventral fins are probably used as feelers. The huge spines of the gill-covers can be erected or depressed as required; when erected, they make a very formidable defence

Seed scallops, with a small amount of white worm tube (Serpula) attached to the shell. These scallkops have not yet spawned, and, for the future welfare of the scallop fishery, should be protected until they have passed the spawning period, which occurs when the scallop is one year old. The capture of these immature scallops is a decided menace to the fishery, and is forbidden by law
Oyster drill (Urosalpinx cinerea) boring the shell of a scallop. Five drills were found on the specimen, but one rolled off when the photograph was taken. The drill bores a fine hole through the shell by means of a ribbon-like tongue lined with saw-like teeth, and then sucks out the contents

The course of the two fish upstream to the point X and the return of the owner to his nest are indicated by the broken lines with the arrowheads. The havey lines indicate the banks of the stream
Placing cheese-cloth retainers over nests containing bass fry about ready to swim up. Most of the nests are seen covered with retainers.
