During the summer of 1872, a series of dredgings was carried on by the authors in the neighhorhood of St. George's Banks. The work was undertaken at the instance of Professor Baird, United States Commissioner of Fish and Fisheries, and carried on, through the cooperation of the Coast Survey, from the steamer Bache, on board of which accommodations were furnished for two persons, with the necessary apparatus. On board the steamer we were received and treated throughout with the utmost courtesy by Commander J. A. Howell, and the other officers of the vessel. Lieutenants Jaques, Hagerman, Jacob and Rush ; and although the dredging was carried on in connection with the special hydrographic work of the Coast Survey, all these gentlemen manifested a degree of interest in our work equal to that which they felt in their own.
On account of the lateness of the season at which operations were begun, the weather was most of the time quite unfavorable for dredging, so that the number of hauls made with the dredge was much smaller than had been expected, and no opportunities were afforded for using the large trawl or the rake dredges which had been provided, with the rest of the outfit for the natural history department of the expedition, by the United States Fish Commissioner. Still, the collections which were made from these comparatively few dredgings have proved rich and very important, giving nearly the only information which we possess of the character of the fauna of the fishing banks, and adding very largely to the knowledge of the distribution, both geographical and bathymetrical, of the marine animals of our northern coast.
