THE AQUATIC EXPLORERS:  A HISTORY OF THE FISHERIES RESEARCH BOARD OF CANADA., Johnstone, Kenneth.
1 Johnstone, Kenneth. THE AQUATIC EXPLORERS: A HISTORY OF THE FISHERIES RESEARCH BOARD OF CANADA.
Toronto University of Toronto Press 1977 0802022707 / 9780802022707 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good 
342 pp, 10 1/2" H. B&w photographs. "In 1898 a group of scientists, working without pay, often under hazardous conditions with only the most primitive equipment, began a systematic study of the fishes of Canada's inland and marine waters. The team operated under the aegis of a board of management which was later to evolve into the Fisheries Research Board, a scientific organization that has placed Candada among the world's leaders in fishery knowledge. This history of the Fisheries Research Board examines the aims and achievements of its research, its attempts to deal with the often conflicting demands of pure and applied science, and its confrontations with a frequently uncomprehending and dissatisfied government. The people who shaped and sustained the organization figure prominently in the account. In-depth taped interviews with senior members and employees, as well as the Annual Reports and other publications of the Department of Fisheries, have enabled (the author) to produce a rich history of a remarkable scientific organization." Very light wear at top/bottom of spine and at corners.
