Page 477 - In the case of the quinnat and the blueback, their " instinct " seems to lead them to ascend these fresh waters, and in a majority of cases these waters will be those in which the fishes in question were originally spawned. Later in the season the growth of the reproductive organs leads them to approach the shore and search for fresh waters, and still the chances are that they may find the original stream. But undoubtedly many fall salmon ascend, or try to ascend, streams in which no salmon was ever...
Page 33 - Snout very long; nostrils rather nearer to the mouth than to the extremity of the snout ; no labial fold except a groove at the angle of the mouth ; teeth of the upper jaw oblique, scarcely constricted near the base; lower teeth slender, triangular in young examples, lanceolate, with a broad base, in old ones. Pectoral fin long, falciform, extending to the dorsal, which is nearer the ventrals than the root of the pectorals.
Page 200 - Stomach without appendages, appearing as a simple enlargement of the intestines. Fishes of moderate or small size, inhabiting the fresh waters of the Old World and of North America. Genera about 200 ; species nearly 1,000; excessively abundant where found, both in individuals and species, and, from their great uniformity in size, form, and coloration, constituting one of the most difficult groups in natural history in which to distinguish genera and species.
Page 460 - N., everywhere abundant where suitable waters occur. Some of the species, especially the larger ones, are marine and anadromous, living and growing in the sea, and entering fresh waters to spawn. Still others live in running brooks, entering lakes or the sea as occasion serves, but not habitually doing so.
Page 624 - A locality which with the water perfectly clear will appear destitute of fish will perhaps yield a number of mud-fish on stirring up the mud at the bottom and drawing a seine through it. Ditches in the prairies of Wisconsin, or mere bog-holes, .apparently affording lodgment to nothing beyond tadpoles, may thus be found filled with Melanuras.
Page 439 - Body elongate, more or less compressed, covered with thin cycloid scales. Head compressed. Mouth extremely large, more or less oblique, usually overlapped by a pointed, compressed, pig-like snout. Gape very wide, the maxillary very long and slender, formed of about three pieces, extending backward far behind the eye; in some species beyond the head. Premaxillaries not protractile, very small, firmly joined to the maxillarics.
Page 631 - Body oblong or moderately elongate, compressed behind, depressed forward, covered with rather large cycloid scales, which are adherent and regularly arranged. Lateral line wanting or represented by a few imperfect pores. Head scaly, at least above. Mouth terminal, small, the lower jaw usually projecting; margin of the upper jaw formed by the premaxillaries only; premaxillaries strong, extremely protractile. Teeth incisor-like or villiform, sometimes present on the vomer, but usually in the jaws only;...
Page 20 - ... rather narrow; dentition similar in both jaws, small obtuse teeth in front, which in the young are pointed, and provided with 3 to 5 cusps...
Page 216 - Body rather robust, little compressed. Head short and rounded. Mouth small, inferior; upper jaw protractile; no barbel. Teeth 4-4, with oblique grinding surface, usually but one of the teeth hooked. Dorsal over ventrals, its first (rudimentary) ray separated from the rest by membrane, not...
Page 148 - ... body much mottled, black and grayish ; top of head, tip of dorsal, middle of adipose fin, and edge of...
