The Oysters Od The bind
Of Prince Edward
Washington, Oct. 5 Canada se
cures nearly all of her oyster supply
from Canadian Atlantic waters, and
there has been much anxiety In that
country becaueo of tho rapidly dwind
ling supply, due to dredging and other
wasteful methods. Recently, accord
ing to ofTlcInl advices received by the
American government, arrangements
have been mado to Increase the sup
ply steadily, eventually bringing the
Canadian oyster beds back to their
.The government of Prince Edward
Island is arranging tho terms of leas
es of the oyster beds off that coast.
Under the leases oyster farming will
be taken up and carried. forward ag
gressively, with due attention to con
servation and maintaining the supply
at a reasonable standard. It Is esti
mated that the area of those oyster
beds will bo between 100,000 and 300,
0Q0 acres. The leases will run for 20
years, with privilege of renewal. For
the first flvo years the annual rentals
will be $1 an acre, for tho second, $3,
and for the last 10 years $5, Tho gov
ernment will receive from the leases
a revenue of $7,000,000.
In 1882 the oyster yield of tho Do
minion, then wholly supplied by the
three maritime provinces, was 64,646
barrels, the high water mark of the In
dustry. The low water mark was In
1907,' when the yield totaled.27,299 bar
'rels. In, 1908 and 1900 the yield was a
little more than 35,000 barrels, but In
1910 It fell off to 29,727 barrels. Twen
ty years ago the fishermen were paid
$1.90 a barrel; recently they have
been getting 'from $6 to $10.
Farmers consider tho mud and oys
ter shells, with their largo percentage
of lime, valuable as fertilizers, and so
every winter dredging machines cut
the oyster beds to pieces and destroy
the oysters by sinking them deep Into
deposits of mud.
Prince Edward Island once gave
Canada more than seven eights of the
oyster yield of the country. For the
past few years the output has sunk
bolow that of New Brunswick.
The rlcheBt and the best oyBters In
American waters are to bo found In
Chesapeake bay. Maryland has been
trying for years to bring about a. state
of affairs that will enable the Industry
to continue without the possibility of
ultimate extinction. The oyster ques
tion comes up before every session of
the legislature. The chief difficulty in
Chesapeake bay, as off Prince Edward
Island, is dredging.
The crab Industry of Chesapeake
bay also Is threatened with extinction,
due to dredging. Maryland Is propos
ing a closed season, and certain regu
lations as to the manner of netting. In
order to supply the demand for crabs
during the late fall and early winter
months, it has of late years been the
policy of crabbers to use dredges.
Years ago the supply of lobsters on
the Atlantic coast generally became
so depleted s that the federal govern
ment resorted to artificial propagation
and' with marked 'success. But for his
timely assistance It has been estimat
ed that the American lobster' would
