PREFATOEY 



The scientific literature relative to the fishes of the western coast of 
North America is of unusually recent, as well as rapid, growth. Noth- 
ing exact was known till the present century had far advanced, for the 
accounts of the earlier writers, such as Yenegas, intead of enlightening 
the reader, convey absolutely false ideas respecting the character of 
the ichthyic fauna. Exclusive of incidental notices, the beginnings of 
an ichthyography of the northwest coast were first published in 1831 
(but printed in 1811) in the "Zoographia Kosso-Asiatica " of Pallas; 
a few species from British Columbia were described by Eichardson in 
1836, while the fishes of California remained absolutely unknown till 1 839, 
when a glimpse, but an entirely inadequate one, was furnished by Lay 
and Bennett in their notes and account of species collected during the 
voyage of the English vessel Blossom. A long silence then supervened, 
and, with the exceptions thus signalized, and the addition by Storer 
of a single species of Syngnathus in 1846, west-coast ichthyography 
commenced in 1854 with the announcement, by Professor Agassiz, of 
the discovery of the remarkable family of Embiotocoids. This was 
speedily followed by numerous communications, by Dr. Gibbons, Dr. 
Girard, and Dr. Ayres, on new species of fishes, mostly from the Cali- 
fornian waters, but partly from the Oregonian ones. As early as 1858, 
nearly 200 species had been made known, and the descriptions of most 
were collected in a general report by Dr. Girard. The main features 
of the ichthyology of the Pacific slope were then already known ; but 
more recent laborers have not only extended largely our knowledge 
of species, but added a number of entirely new forms, and thrown much 
light on the relations of the fish-fauna of that region to others. 

The following bibliography is a nearly complete enumeration, in 
chronological order, of the memoirs and articles of all kinds that have 
been published on the fishes of the region in question. The chrono- 
logical order has been determined by the date of reading of the articles 



communicated to learned societies. lu cases of question of priority, 
the right depends, of course, on the period of publication ; but this 
is sometimes with great difficulty ascertainable, and motives of con- 
venience have dictated the sequence adopted. 

Perhaps some will be disposed to believe that the compiler has sinned 
in redundancy rather than deficiency in this bibliography. The evils 
of the former are, however, easily remedied, while those of the latter 
must leave the consulter in more or less doubt. Many popular works 
have been catalogued where original information of even slight value 
was contained, and when such works were among the earliest published 
on the regions.in question. Besides those enumerated, works on Cali- 
fornia, too numerous to mention, contain incidental information (very 
rarely of any original value, however) respecting the fishes and fisheries 
of that State; and a number on the British possessions belong to the 
same category. Among those relative to British Columbia and Van- 
couver's Island worthy to be mentioned, but not to be particularized, 
are the volumes of Wm. Carew Hazlitt (1858), J. Desford Pemberton 
(1860), Duncan George Forbes Macdonald (1862), Capt. C. E. Barrett 
Lennard (1862), Alexander Eattray (1862), Com. E. C. Mayne (1862), 
G. M. Sproat (1868), Francis Poole (1872), and Capt. W. F. Butler 
(1873). 

The titles of the Government publications are taken from a manu- 
script compilation embracing notices of all the reports published by 
the General and State governments on scientific explorations, and 
intended to be more particular than the present work. They are 
retained with the bars ( | ), indicating the distribution on the title- 
pages of the lines, etc. 

Several societies have, or have had, the custom of publishing com- 
munications, sometimes of an elaborate and extended nature, without 
any titles. This strange and senseless mode of procedure seems to 
have originated in some freak or affectation of modesty on the part of 
authors, perhaps, rather than a deliberate intention to shirk labor or 
confuse matters. Confusion and trouble to others are nevertheless the 
result of this vicious negligence, and a consequence is an ignoring of 
the papers thus unentitled or an irreconcilable variation of titles in 
different bibliographies. Whether the custom originates with authors 
or not, the assumption of it is discreditable to the editor or editors of 
the publications adopting it. A number of the papers here recorded 
belong to this category of the unentitled or disentitled : the titles fol- 



lowing preceded by an asterisk (*) are selected from the remarks pre- 
fatory to the paper in the proceedings, and those preceded by a 
dagger ( t ) have been composed by the present writer, since nothing 
intelligible precedes the papers themselves. It is to be hoped that the 
senseless and causeless sin in question may speedily be discontinued. 
There is no reason why any one should be compelled to read the whole 
of an article (as is sometimes necessary) to obtain an idea of what the 
paper relates to; and the "Catalogue of Scientific Papers (1800-1863) 
compiled and published by the Koyal Society of London" shows how a 
bibliography edited under the best auspices may be involved in grave 
errors by the negligence adverted to.

[Translated as follows : ] 

A Natural and Civil History of California: containing an accurate descrip- 
tion of that country, its soil, mountains, harbours, lakes, rivers, and seas 5 
its animals, vegetables, minerals, and famous fishery for pearls. The cus- 
toms of the inhabitants, their religion, government, and manner of living, 
before their conversion to the Christian religion by the missionary Jesu- 
its. Together with accounts of the several voyages and attempts made for 
settling California, and taking actual surveys of that country, its gulf, and 
coast of the South-Sea. Illustrated with copperplates, and an accurate 
map of the country and adjacent seas. Translated from the original Span- 
ish of Miguel Venegas, a Mexican Jesuit, published at Madrid 175. In 
two volumes'. Vol. I[ II]. = London : printed for James Rivington and 
James Fletcher, at the Oxford Theatre, in Pater-Noster-Row. 1759. [8, 
vol. i, 10 1., 455 pp., 1 pi. ; vol. ii.] 

[The only references to fishes are as follows (v. i, pp. 47-48) : " But if the soil of Cali- 
fornia be in general barren, the scarcity of provisions is supplied by the adjacent sea; for 
both in the Pacifick ocean and the Gulf of California, the multitude and variety of fishes 
are incredible. Father Antonio de la Ascencion, speaking of the bay of San Lucas 
[Lower California], says, ' With the nets which every ship carried, they caught a great 
quantity of fish of different kinds, and all wholesome and palatable : particularly holy- 
buss, salmon, turbots, skates, pilchards, large oysters, thornbacks, mackerel, barbels, 
bouetos, soals, lobsters, and pearl oysters.' And, speaking of the bay of San Francisco, 
on the western coast, he adds : ' Here are such multitudes of fish, that with a net, which 
the commodore had on board, more was caught every day than the ship's company could 
make use of: and of these a great variety, as crabs, oysters, breams, mackerel, cod, bar- 
bels, thornbacks, &c.' And in other parts he makes mention of the infinite number of 
sardines, which are left on the sand at the ebb; and so exquisite that those of Laredo in 
Spain, then famous for this fish, do not exceed them. Nor are fish less plentiful along the 
gulf [of California], where to the above mentioned species Father Picolo adds, tunnies, 
anchovies, and others. Even in the rivulets of this peninsula are found barbels and cray- 
fish : but the most distinguished fish of both seas are the whales ; which induced the 
ancient cosmographers to call California, Punta de Balenas, or Cape Whale : and these fish 
being found in multitudes along both coasts, give name to a channel in the gulf, and a 
bay in the South sea" (v. i, pp. 47-48).]

[Translated as follows:] 

A Voyage to California, to observe the Transit of Venus. By Mons. Chappe 
d'Auteroche. With an historical description of the authors route 
through Mexico, and the natural history of that province. Also, a voyage 
to Newfoundland and Sallee, to make experiments on Mr. Le Eoy's time 
keepers. By Monsieur de Cassini. London: printed for Edward and Charles 
Dilly, lu The Poultry. MDCCLXXVIII. [8 C , 4 p. 1., 315 pp., with "plan 
of City of Mexico".] 

Extract of a letter from Mexico addressed to the Eoyal Academy of Sci- 
ences at Paris, by Don Joseph Anthony de Alzate y Ramyrez, now 
a correspondent of the said academy, containing some curious particu- 
lars relative to the natural history of the country adjacent to the City 
of Mexico, pp. 77-105. 

[It is undoubtedly this work that is meant in the statement that has so largely gone the 
rounds of the periodical press, to the effect that the Californian viviparous fishes 'were ob- 
served during the voyage for the observation of the transit of Venus to Lower California, 
1769. A perusal of the accounts given, however, renders it evident that the fishes in ques- 
tion were not Enabiotocids but rather Cyprinodontids, probably of the genus Mollienesia. 
The account by Don Alzate (pp. 89-91) is as follows: 

" I send you some viviparous scaly fishes, of which I had formerly given you an account. 
What I have observed in them this year is ' If you press the belly with your fiugers, you 
force out the fry before their time, and upon inspecting thorn through the microscope yon 
may discern the circulation of the blood, such as it is to be when the fish is grown up.' If 
you throw these little fishes into water, they will swim as well as if they had beeu long 
accustomed to live in that element. The fins and tail of the males are larger and blacker 
than those of the females, so that the sex is easily distinguished at first sight. These fish 
have a singular manner of swimming ; the male and the female swim together on two par- 
allel lines, the female always uppermost and the male undermost; they thus always keep 
at a constant uniform distance from each other, and preserve a perfect parallelism. The 
female never makes the least motion, either sideways or towards the bottom, but directly 
the male does the same." 

To this account is added a foot-note (p. 90) containing the following additional informa- 
tion: 

"Don Alzate has sent those fishes preserved in spirits; their skin is covered with very 
small scales ; they vary in length from an inch to eighteen lines, and they are seldom above 
five, six, or seven lines in the broadest part. They have a fin on each side near the gills, 
two small ones under the belly, a single one behind the anus, which lies between the fin 
and the single one ; the tail is not forked ; lastly, this fish has a long fin on the back, * 
little above the fin, which is under the belly. 

" We know of some viviparous fishes in our seas, such as loach, &c. most of these have 
a smooth skin without any scales. The needle of Aristotle is viviparous, and yet covered 
with broad and hard scales, I have caught some that had young ones still in their womb. 
Ag to these viviparous fishes, it is a particular and new sort, and we are obliged to Don 
Alzate for making us acquainted with it. It breeds in a lake of fresh water near the City 
of Mexico." . 

This is, so far as known, the earliest notice of the viviparity of Cynrinodontids. The 
mode of consorting together (exaggerated in the account) is common to a number of rep- 
resentatives of the family, and is alluded to by Prof. Agassiz in a name (Zygonectes, i. e. 
swimming in pairs) conferred on one of the genera of the family.]

[As indicated on the title-page, the "Zoographia Rosso- Asiatica " was not regularly 
published till 1831, but was printed in 1811, and was only detained by the loss of the cop- 
per-plates. The letter-press was, however, to a slight extent, distributed before the reg- 
ular publication of the edition, and a copy was possessed by Cuvier, who has given a 
summary of the third volume in the Histoire Naturelle des Poissons (t. 1, pp. 200-201). 

Describes species of which specimen had been obtained from the Kussian possessions 
in Northwestern America. The following are published as if new, although several had 
previously been described : 

Phalangistes adpenserinus (p. 110, pi. 17).

[N. sp. Ohimcera colliei (p. 71, pL S3). 

This volume is interesting as being the first publication in which any attempt has boen 
made to scientifically indicate the fishes of the coast. The "naturalist " of the expedition 
was, however, incompetent for the task, and the notes taken evince that he was not 
sufficiently versed in the rudiments of ichthyology to know what to observe. Neverthe- 
less, the notes have an interest,- if not of importance, enough to transcribe what relates 
to the regions in question : 

"Off Saint Lawrence Island was caught, in the dredge a fish apparently allied to the 
genus Liparis, Art. It had the ' ventral fins placed before the pectorals, but united and 
continuous with them; aflat, raised, and rough tubercle, of nearly the diameter of an 
English sixpence, was seated forward between the pectorals, its anterior part reaching as 
far as the ventrals ; this may be of use in copulation : its cceca were pretty numerous.' C. 
The roughness of this tubercle renders it difficult to refer the fish to any known species ; 
but it ia probably nearly related to the Cyclopterus gelatinosus. Pall., a Lipari* which is 
known to inhabit the seas in which this was obtained. The existence of cceca removes it 
from Lepadogaster, Gonan. 

"Kotzebuo Sound afforded a specimen of a new species of Ophidium, L., the Oph. stigma,. 

" On the coast of California, a little to the northwards of the harbour of San Fraucisco, 
an Orthagoriscus was met with, apparently the Orth. mold., Bl. They swam about the 
ship with the dorsal fin frequently elevated above the surface." (p. 50.) 

"On the coast of California, at Monterey, Mr. Collie's notes mention the occurrence of 
[1] a species of Sparus, of two Scombri, and of a Clupea. [2] The first of the Scombridce is 
apparently a Scomber, Cuv. ; it was 'smaller than the mackerel; it was marked on the 
back with cross waved narrow bands of black and greenish blue; its first dorsal fin hnd 
nine spines, and there were four small pinnules behind the second dorsal and the anal : it 
had a simple air-bladder of moderate size, and an immense number of cceca, with a stomach 
extending the whole length of the abdomen, narrow, tapering to the posterior part, and 
covered throughout nearly its whole length with the milt. ? Its internal membrane forms 
longitudinal folds; the intestines have three convolutions.' C. This fish occurred in 
shoals. [3J The second species was met with but once. It is a Caranx, Cuv., of which 
' the teeth in the upper maxillary are scarcely to be felt : the pectorals reach nearly to op- 
posite the anus: a double narrow stripe of deeper blue than the general surface runs back- 
wards on each side of the first dorsal fin to opposite its termination, the two parts being 
separated by a broad line of dirty white, which has a narrow, dark-coloured line along its 
middle: there are no distinct divisions in the anal and second dorsal fins: the air-bladder 
is simple, and small, and extends from ihefaucen to the anus ; the stomach is much shorter 
than in the preceding species; the cceca, although numerous, are less so than in it, and the 
intestine is folded in the same manner.' C. From the nature of the colouring of this fish, 
as described by Mr. Collie, there can be little doubt of its constituting a distinct species. 



15 

[4] Along with the first species of Scomber, there occurred in shoals a small species of 
Clupea, L., ' without teeth ; with the dorsal fin a little before the ventral ; and with the back 
dark greenish blue, and having one line and part of another of rounded black spots on 
each side nearly on a level with the eye: the gill membranes contain six rays, and overlap 
each other at their lower part ; the stomach resembles that of the first Scomber ; it has also 
numerous caeca; the air-bladder is small and tapering.' O. The other fishes observed at 
Monterey were [5] a new species of Cliimcera, Cuv., diifering essentially from the Chimtera 
of the Atlantic, and approaching somewhat in the position of its second dorsal fin to the 
Callorhynchus, Cuv. ; [6] a species of Torpedo, Dum.; and [7] a Raia " (pp. 54-55).]

[The name of the compiler is not published on the title-page. In the usual introduction, 
Mr. Gray states: "The characters of the genera of Sharks and Rays, with their sy- 
nonyms, have principally been derived from the work of Professors Miiller and Henle. 
The specimens which were not named by those authors when engaged in their work, or 
by Dr. Andrew Smith, have been determined by Mr. Edward Gerrard." The responsi- 
bility of the compilation, how.-.ver, apparently devolves on JOHN EDWARD GRAY. 
The diagnoses of the groups, and, for tho most part, tho sjuonymy of the species, are, in 
fact, translated or transcribed from Miiller and lleulo's great work on the Plagiostomes, 
entitled as follows : Systematische Beschreibung der Plagiostomen von Dr. J. MULLER,

Sclater, in the first instance, " was inclined to regard them as possibly bones of one of the 
gigantic rays," and afterwards (when he had been told what they were !) "as the hardened 
notochord of a low organized flsh." They were, in truth, the axial skeletons of Pennatulid 
zoophytes ! ! !
