Catch of Fish in Newfoundland and Labrador in 1881
By Jos. Hayward [From letter to Prof. S. F. Baird.]

I enclose a memorandum showing the exports of the product of this colony for the year ending July 31, 1882. It gives the catch of fish for the year 1881, as at the date the memorandum was made up all the fish caught in that year was exported.

The catch for the present year is not so large, but the prices have considerably increased.
