(from Chronicle & News, Oct. 19, 1855)

Mackinaw Fisheries - A correspondent of the Toledo Blade, in writing from Mackinaw, gives a statement of the fisheries thereabouts. He states the quantity of fish packed and shipped at Mackinaw for the present season, at 14,183 barrels. Taking former years as a criterion, the amount which will be put up during the entire season will be 21,000 barrels. Beaver Islands packed 1,500 bbls., making a total from the Straits of Mackinaw of 22,800 bbls. The correspondent says "the average of trout and whitefish this year is about equal. Last year the trout was most abundant. The amount of fish taken last year was nearly one-third less than the present season, and in fact this year has been the most profitable season for the fishermen of any since 1847, from the fact that the fish are plenty and prices high."
