The tests were expected to indicate which of two eoiiini(»nly used knots caused the greatest loss in material tensile strength, and whethei-or not material rccoNcrcd fi-oiii returned fish had dejireciated in quality. The (h)id)l(' sr|uare knot and the blood knot compaiMMl (piite closely in the tensile streiiglli tests. The blood knot appears to be slightly su|)eri(»i'. although breaking figures for both knots averaged approxi- mately 21 pounds. Two tests on nlon I'ccovered from tagged fish gave slightly diffei-ent results. Nylon from a yelhnvtail that had been lield in an a(|nariuni for six weeks partt'd at a sti'ain of l2() pounds. This Avas a matei-ial lailure. The second test produced a failure at the blood knot, but this was at a 2(i-|)oun(l siraiii. The material for the second test was taken from a yellowtail Ihat had been at liberly for 172 days following tagging. In both cases the line was examined under a microscope and found to be slightly sci-atehed, hiil other damage oi" weakness could not be discovered.
