It has been well-known for long, that most of the fisheries are carried on at certain periods and that the existence of such periods is almost always conditioned by the habits of the fishes. If the fish occur in quantities worth catching, the fishermen as a rule are soon on the spot and do not move until the catches no longer repay the costs of the time and labour. Thus arises a fishery-period
