SMITH REVIEWS ALASKA
HALIBUT INDUSTRY
"The halibut catch accerdlted to Al
aska for 1913 totals between 13,000,
000 and 14,000,000 pounds all taken In
Southeastern Alaska," said Henry O.
Smith, Alaska's chief representative
for the United States bureau of fisher
ies. This however, he states repre
sents only a portion of the actual pro
duction of halibut from Alaska waters
for the total catch of the Pacific Coast
amounting to 50.000,000 pounds is al
most all takei\. in Alaskan waters.
That which is accredited to the ter
ritory is the amount shipped from Al
askan ports, and does not include home
consumption, nor any taken by foreign
vessels and. American boats catching
supposedly outside the three mile lim
it and shipped from Southern ports.
"The salmon catch," said Mr* Smith,
"for 1913 season, in Alaska, has been
under expectations, especially with
choice reds, and the prevailing prices
have not brought much encouragement
to cannerymen.
"DesDite discounuiinc beliefs, the
fact remains that the salmon catch on
the Paciflc coast is enormous. It has
been computed that if the catch of
one season were canned in the ordi
nary tall cans and these cans placed
end to end they would make a chain
long enough to girdle the earth at the
equator."
Mr. Smith says that the fishing in
dustry in Alaska Is only in its infancy
but that much must be done to protect
and increase the propogation of the
choicest food fishes. There are over
200 varieties of food fish in Alaskan
waters of which only a dozen varieties
are being used.
Mr. Smith believes that there should
be more salmon hatcheries built, and
he points to the fact that in Puget
Sound waters where hatcheries are
maintained, there was a good catch
during the past season especially of
the reds, while in Alaska there was a
decided decrease. These hatcheries,
he says, must be increased In Alaska,
but must be regarded as supplemental
to nature and should not operate to

He is in favor of stringent regulations
about catching sal men that have enter- j
ed stream. "They&re unfit to can," !
ho says. "A humpgy will lose half a ?
pound In weight the first 24 hours af- 1
tor entering fresh water and In 48

Halibut, like the*salmon, are dlsap- !
pearing In Alaskan waters according
to Mr. Smith, especially In the inside
waters and are only plentiful here dur- :
ing the summer months. The Bpawn- i
ing habits of halibut have so far baffled '
all authorities on things piscatorial
but Mr. Smith believes that they como
to tho inside waters for that purpose,
although it is the accepted belief that :
they come to feed on the marine pas
tures of the banks. Mr. Smith points
to the fact that the eggs of femato fish
caught out in the open sea have not 1
reached the same stage of maturity
that characterizes those caught in in
side waters.

more efficiency in the department by
an increase in the field force to make I

that all enemies to salmon should be i
