Salmon Ova for Australia.

Source: The Illustrated London News, [Date unknown]

By the kind permission of Sir Watkin Wynn and Mr. Edmund Buckley, about 30,000 salmon ova were lately obtained from the River Dovey, and were safely deposited, in beautiful condition, in the boxes prepared with gravel for them on board the ship S. Curling, which sailed from Liverpool on the 25th ult. for Melbourne. The apparatus is so arranged that the ova will receive a continuous stream of pure cold water all the way out, the water running through an icehouse, containing fifteen tons of Wenham Lake Ice, before it flows over the ova.
