A 45-page handbook of information on the salt-water fisheries of the southern coast from Cape Hatteras to the Mexican border, has just been issued by the Office of the Coordinator of Fisheries.

[ocr errors]

The new bulletin is an account of the fishery resources of the entire southern coast and contains information on approximately 25 different kinds of fish, mollusks, and crustaceans that are important products of the South

Interesting facts on the habits of the fishes, their food value, the methods of marketing, and the development of the fisheries, are included in this booklet, which should be useful to anyone associated with the fishing industry.

The bulletin is the third of a series of regional booklets on the fisheries written by Rachel L. Carson, a biologist of the Fish and Wildlife Service, Already published are "Fish and Shellfish of New England" (Conservation Bulletin 33), and "Fishes of the Middle West" (Conservation Bulletin 34).
