One hundred million wall-eyed pike and four million brook trout will be distributed throughout the lakes and streams of Minnesota this year. Planting approximately four hundred million fish fry, propagating them and caring for big game, has cost Minnesota $755,232.64 during the last ten years.

Over thirty-six million pike perch have been sent out from three of the Pennsylvania hatcheries in the last few days. The fish are distributed throughout the state, the Susquehanna and Delaware getting large shares in the east, and the Alleghany, Monongahela, and Kiskiminetas rivers and French creek in the west. The first shad eggs were taken at Torresdale hatchery a few days ago, and the cultivation will be carried on by joint work between Pennsylvania and New Jersey with a view to increasing the famous food fish in the Delaware.
