On September 5th last, the Curator received information from Mr. J. A. Brodie; Chief Inspector of Fisheries for New South Wales, that a strange fish had been stranded at Bermagui. The communication was accompanied by a rough sketch, and the following particulars noted by Mr. Elias Laycock, one of the Fishery Inspectors: " Length about six feet two inches, girth four feet eight inches, spread of tail two feet three inches, weight between two and three hundredweight, colour salmon and silver, flesh white."
