HISTORY OF ALPENA COUNTY

BY WILLIAM BOULTON IN 1876

"The spawn of the lake trout may be obtained by artificial methods, and about the same processes of incubation obtain as with the ova of other members of the Salmonidse class. The lake trout are a very acceptable and valuable table fish, already supplying a large home consumption, while as an tide of commerce they rank very high. Fish dealers have informed us that they are more easily kept in good condition during the warm seasons, and bear transportation better than almost any other variety. The species, it is be-leived, may be successfully introduced into all the larger and better class of inland lakes, where they will find water of ample depth and food in suffient supply to warrant the experiment of their culture. " Besides the above we have pickerel, bass, sturgeon, herring, suckers, "law-rs; " and a number of others.
