PRESENT STATUS OF FISH LIFE In his several trips to the Salton Sea, the author has paid particular attention to checking up on the number of species of fish now found in the sea and their abundance. The carp disappeared several years ago in what seemed to be an epidemic. Captain Charles Davis says they came up in shoals of dead fish on the shore at and near Mullet Island, the stench being almost unbearable for sometime. Most of these fish were carp, but there were other fish mixed with them. The mullet have also almost disappeared. I interviewed the mullet fishermen while they were working this spring. They stated that they could find but one small school of large fish and the}- moved about all over the sea. They say what they do catch are all large fish and in the proportion of about one male to 100 females. They believe the mullet are not now breeding in the sea. In a trip of forty miles on the sea over their supposed haunts, I saw only one good sized mullet on March 21 of this year. The Colorado River trout is occasionally seen near the east end of the sea. The humpback sucker is reported as rather common. The author, assisted by several deputies, during the trip in March, made quite an extended search for the desert cyprinodont and found it at nearly every point where we touched shore, from a spring about seven miles above the Hartley Salt Works on the north shore of the sea, around to Fish Springs and Figtree John Spring where Dr. Evermann.
