Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 9, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, MARCH 9, 1918 THE ��LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD v PAGE SEVEN Che^ap Fish for the Prairies Out of the British Columbian port i fish is interesting. Steaming out from of Prince Rupert, there is a little fish Prfnco Rupert, the trawler Bteers for ing steamer which is employed in ! a certain area which in the judgment. catching fish almost entirely for the people of the provinces oi Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. >Uie la the trawler "James Cnrruthers" owned and operated by the Canadian Irish "and Cold Storage Company who, in cooperation with the Canada Food Board, have pledged themselves to supply the consumers of the provinces mentioned, with flounders, soles, brill and skate at terf ce^its per pound. The "James Gamaliel's" is an unique craft, Inasmuch as she is the only, steam trawler operating on tho Pacific CoiiBt of America. She is a British product, having been built in Hull, Rngland, some five years ago for st'eam trawling on the Pacific Coast. On her arrival at Prince Rupert, via Cape Horn, halibut fishing was found to be more profito.blo than traveling for Holes and flounders, and she bocame n long-liner and was the first, craft to Introduce that method of flailing on the coast with any degree of success. Are Luxuries Now Tho principal fishery of the Pacific ia for salmon and halibut, but theso two fish have now broken into the luxury class and can no iongcrx bo quoted as^cheap' food. When the jioo-ple of tho West wanted sea fish, they had to buy salmon or halibut or fish brought two thousand miles from the Atlantic. While the former were high in price, the latter were as high owing (o tho transportation charges, and those who relished a dish of sea food had to pay pretty Btiff for it. When tho food controller refjtiested Canadians to oat moro fish as a substitute for the beef and pork so badly needed oversoas, it was tip to him to arrange supplies of fish, and cheap fish at that. Tho Atlantic supply was first arranged, but the Pacific con- " i~, ~, '" ' , stituted a more difficult problem. All! or; .tIle Waste; and want. ;,�'Td ��ia>lmg a loss of hun- ; dreds of dollars. Cheap Fish For Prairies A seven davs' fishing trip with fine Careful investigation by the Food wither will see the trawler in port Controller's Pish Committee oliciied with a hundred thousand pounds of tho fact that sea fish at ten cents per j fish| ot which eighty thousand pounds pound would be readily purchased in be flat-fish. However, it is not Western centres. To bring fish to | ahvavs flnc weather and the fish are consumers at that price meant using a |,0, aiway8 caught in quantity, and the steam trawler to catch them and a r�-! average catch will bo around 250,000 duction In transportation rates.

The latter do not work for wages, but are paid for HIGH COST OF RETAIL DELIVERY The delivery system of a grocer in all flal-fish landed on the dock at | Bloomfiehl, Intl.," was recently inves Pr'nce Rupert. The fishermen , are union men and do nothing but the actual fishing operations. Tho Canadian Fish and Cold Storage Company. Limited, freeze the fish tigatgd! and disclosed a typical case of inexcusable waste. Of the 009 deliveries made for the week, 57 per cent, included 3 articles or less. 24 per cent, were of 1 article only, JS per cent, of pack it In boxes iced for shipment, and 1 0 articles only, 15 per cent of 3 artic deliver It to retailors in Western cen- ] ies> 12 per cent, of 4 articles, 9 per tres. Tho fish Is sold to the consumer 1 cent. ot r, arI{eles, and 21 per cent, of at 10 cents, which, is an extremely reasonable price and will undoubtedly result in a brisk demand. , Flat-fish are tho most delicate of all fishes. Flounders have long been popular in the eastern states and provinces; sole is an epicurean dish in Great Britain, while skate is one of the moat nutritious of fish in France upon exclusive menus-as "raie ait buerre noir" and is much sought after. Method of Catching  The method of catching these flat C articles or more. The cost to the grocer was estimated at three cents a delivery. These figures have been used as an argument for the cash and carry plan. U. S.
