Unfortunately these fishes are far too large to be preser- ved for direct comparison. The "Mako" is apparently the great white shark or man-eater (Carchar- adon carcharias), gamey enough, but otherwise unpleasant to meet. Yours sincerely DAVID STARR JORDAN (Editor's Note-- It would be inter- esting to many Catalina anglers if they could learn the origin of the name "spearfish" as applied to the Tetrapturus mitsukurii. Our informa- tion is that the late Dr. Charles F. Holder called the fish "marlin sword- fish" many years ago. Spearfish is certainly a n~isnomer! The fish does not spear anything. If it "speared," it would be necessary for it to swim backwards to withdraw its rapier- like bill. It is easily understood how a fish with a hook in its mouth, dashing for liberty, would fail to change its course and crash into the side of an angler's boat; but even with the weight of the line trailing after it, the marlin sword- fish moves its head considerably while battling. Our observations from a pony blimp and from a flying boat have been such that we most em- phatically state that they do not spear. They cut and slash. We have watch- ed a number of these fish in action.) LOCATION OF CAMPS The following camps are located on the Island : Long Beach Boy Scouts--Fourth of July Cove.
