REYES Steam'r Pier FOOD OF SEA FISH INFLUNCED BY TEMPERATURE AND LIGHT By Science Service Toronto, Sept. 20.--The migrations of fishes, long a matter of much coln- mercial and scientific importance, re- ceived liglft from a new angle in dis- cussions before the meeting of the British Association for the Advance- ment of Science here, by Professor A. G.Huntsman of the University of Tor- onto. Professor Huntsman studied, not the fishes themselves, but the host of minute plants and animals, called the plankton, that constitute their chief food. lnituences that control the movements of the plankton must also control to a large extent the move- ments of the fish that feed on them. Professor Huntsman has found that the organisms in the plankton respond in the main to three sets of influences : light, temperature and degree of salti- ness, or salinity. Light does not pen- etrate into water any great depth; be- low a few hundred feet the world of the waters is perpetually dark. Some of the animals in the plankton like the dark, and dive toward tile bottom during the day, while others like the light and luxuriate on the surface dur- ing the sunny hours. They are simi- larly affected by differences in tem- perature, being distributed both in depth and latitude according to the prevail- ing temperature of the water. Finally, salinity affects them. The ocean is not equally salty everywhere, but has more salt in quiet waters that receive f [ 4 Contains NO Benzoate of Soda--NO Synthetic Acids-- NO Orange Powders--NO Extracts or Flavors PRICE'S CONFECTIONERY Corner Crescent and Catalina Avenues C.
