White-Fish.--Great numbers of this excellent fish have been already taken. Sixteen thousand were taken at Gross Isle in 12 hours, by two seines.
The practice that the fishermen have of throwing the fish from the net into a pile is very injurious to them. A bruised fish, certainly, cannot be said to be as good as a sound one; neither will it keep as well in pickle. It is to be hoped that a regard for the interest of our fish market, will suggest a different mode of taking fish from the net.
