I Ottawa, Feb. 10.---Notwithstanding the fact Hint the total catch .of sea fish in Canadian waters during January this year was much smaller than for the same month in 1917. i(s value, $s:;ii,.",(i7, was $2."".7 greater than a year ago. This fact, which is brought, out in the monthly report on deep sea fisheries issued from the department of the naval service yesterday, is, no doubt, accounted for by the advance in the price of fish during the last year. Tho decrease in the size of the catch is largely due to the abnormally cold weather which prevailed on the Allan, rie coasl during January- The total-quantity of cod and halibut, landed in the whole of Canada last month was 111,Kit hundredweights les| (linn lor .tannary, 110 7, but its value was greater by $,$tl,SL7. The catch of tliese fish during January this yeiT was almust thirty thousand hundred-w'eiglilts more than for the same month in ltfl'". The smelt fishery resulted in a catch almost equivalent to that for January lust year, but tho, value increased by'O. The herring catch, almost, entirely confined to British Columbia at this season, was 17,0S2 hundredweights less than in quantity but $8f>.o4(l greater in value. The current lobster season which op. ened on November l."> in Charlotte and St. John counties, New Urijnswick, is now in progress on both sides of the Bay of Fundy, and on the Nova Scotia eoa3t east of Halifax harbor. Up to the end of January tho total pack was 27-ln cases, while 5-1!S hundredweights were shipped fresh in shell to market. During the corresponding period In the preceding year the pack was -1,0(10 .cases and the shell 10,904 hundredweights. ' MAW! DON'T YOU-SEE YOUR CIO IS SIKUjISTIPATEO Look at Tongue!
