    Excerpt from The Scientific Results of the Exhibition It would have been a congenial task to me to describe here some of the rare specimens of great interest to the zoologist, which have been sent by foreign countries to this exhibition, such specimens as Nordenskjold's Phytina and the magnificent skeletons of Ziphioid Whales shown in the Swedish court are of surpassing interest and importance from the zoological point of view. At the same time it must be admitted that they do not have any special importance in relation to Fisheries, and accordingly I must leave unnoticed such rarities and delights of the zoologist, in order to address myself more especially to the question of the relationship of the science of zoology to the fish industry. The value of zoological science in relation to fisheries is not, I think, so fully appreciated in this country as is desirable in. the interests of the public, and of those who make profit by enterprise in fisheries. There is a very general tendency among men whose occupations are of a commercial character to undervalue the work of scientific inquiry, not only in regard to such matters as fisheries and fish-culture, but also in relation to manufacturing industries, agriculture, mining, and even in relation to medicine. To a large extent this arises from a misconception as to the real nature and character of what is called "science."
