"Of late years a number of steam
trawlers have reinforced the metro?
politan fleet of sailing vessels. The
French first tried this method of fish?
ing in Newfoundland waters in 1903
and 1904. with unsatisfactory results.
No trawlers ar?#rr.entioned in the official
reports for 1905 and 1900. In 1907. four
of these vessels resumed the experiment.
In 1908, there, were eleven, and their
catch averaged 121 hundredweight a
day. This was so encouraging that
thirty trawlers came out in 1909. The j
catch that year was poor. In 1910. i
the number of trawlers dropped to t. n
and the catch was about half what it I
had been in the banner year. 19f*>.
Partly owing to this, and partly because
of the extraordinary abundance of i
fish in Iceland, only seven trawlers
lame out in mi.
"In 1912 there were fourteen F.-emh
steam trawlers avc racing 402 tons gross
operating on the Hanks. One of thetn j
was wrecked early in the season on
the coast of Mifjuelon. The total'
catch of the remaining thirteen is j
not, known, but they delivered ut St.'

would amount to an average of 3.ov> hun?
