URGl’EAN WAR . REVIVES OLDEN r SOUND INDUSTRY Dog Fish Livers Used To Replace The Coil Liver Oil Supplies l The F} ropean war has an un- lcxpected reaction on Puget Sound .in the revival of an old industry, although on new lines, and from an entirely new slant, creating a3 demand for the livers of the dog: lfish, a pariah of the [salt waters? :and the bane of the sport fish-f erman. Because of the war which i has stopped all trade between this. ,Counti‘y and the Scandinavian wa— ; ,tch the supply of cod liver oil.‘ from Norway has, been cut offfl land drug houses have turned tell the lowly dogfish to meet the de-l mand for supplies of the vitamin? containing oil. I Fishermen are reaping a liar-l. ‘vest now with the season near at lhand and are reported as making as high as $150 a. week, working] .the waters between Shelton andl the lower Sound, with headquar—l ters at Steilacooni. So far only} one family is at work, setting! their lines at night and following the herring runs which mean that; dogfisl'i are near. Using Set lines; Imorc than 1800 feet long with al nook attached every six feet, bait— .ing with herring, the fishermen! expect a fifty per cent. catch, oil 50 to 75 pounds of livers, taking about three hours to set each (line. I i The current market price forl dogfish livers is cents, but tenl cents a pound is expected later on, as the fish get scarce. Rat- fish, resembling the dog, are, onrthless as are mudsharks which { frequently take the bait, but when a bed of lingcod is found their liv- i ers bring 40 cents a pound. Thel fish carcases can be sold at $2' a ton at the Tacoma fish meal plant, but when livers bring real; .money the rest of the fish goes: overboard, which is against the? law in California and Oregon, and soon will be in this state. Recalls Old Industry Back in the days of ox-team logging the dogfish were caught; by fishermen, using seines, now outlawed, and the livers were tried out in camps near the fishing grounds in coal oil cans, and sold to the small loggers of the eighties and early nineties forz greasing skids over which the logs were hauled. The fish then making most of the catch was: perch, with some salmon, which were sold in the Portland mar- kets, but perch and poggies have} llong since gone out of demand for} food fish, except for the occas-l ional plunker with line and sink-. {er; and seining for salmon is also‘ Iout, the main supply in market.l coming from the lower Sound or the ocean; the upper Sound pre- al— 2 I ifor many years. i _____.._________ j l [Seattle Loses !
