The Public Aquarium: Its Construction, Equipment, and Management
The Public Aquarium: Its Construction, Equipment, and Management
Originally published by the Bureau of Fisheries of the U. S. Department of Commerce in 1922, this may be the only book ever published on the operation of commercial aquariums. At the time of original publication the author, Charles Haskins Townsend was Director of the New York Aquarium. The writer has had long experience in the management of the aquarium in New York City and has assisted in planning certain aquariums already built as well as others projected. He was connected with the National Commission of Fisheries during the period when that organization maintained temporary aquariums at the great industrial exhibitions held in this country and observed some of them in operation. Millions of people saw those aquariums of the past, while other millions enjoy the few that exist here at present. Having supplied information recently to a score of cities that contemplate constructing aquariums, the writer has felt it incumbent upon him to set forth the essentials of the matter for the guidance of an increasing number of inquirers. The present discussion is based largely on the methods of the large aquarium in New York City, which has been in operation for 30 years and is now undergoing extensive modernization.

THINKING OF MINKING ? Starting a Farm, that is.... having visions of a quick, fortune ? Riviera holidays every year ? Unlimited fur coats for the wife ? Then prepare yourself for second thoughts, because all the experts agree that running a Mink Farm successfully is by no means as easy as it sounds. And if it’s a fast profit you’re after, then study closely the experience of one expert who, in the past three years, has poured nearly ?10,000 into the Mink Farm which his sons run — and has not yet taken out one single penny. But this does not discourage Mr. Cleo Roberts, by trade a builder, who owns the Hanham Mink Farm Ltd., on the fringe of Bristol. ‘We shall break even this year’, he told us, ‘and next year it will start to pay. But it’s a full-time job — and by no means an easy one’. David (19) and Michael Roberts (18), Mr. Roberts’ sons, are the people who do the bulk of the work. ‘Oh yes’, said David. ‘You probably go into it with visions of running round in a sports car within six months.., but it’s not like that at all’. Mr. Roberts started the farm three years ago ‘because my two boys left school and I didn’t know what to do with them’. He had the land to spare — at Castle Farm Road, Hanham — and had been consistently refused permission to build on it, so put the mink farm on it instead. ‘I think I realised even then,’ he said, ‘that it would be nonsense to imagine a quick or fabulous profit from the business. Some of these adverts imply that all you have to do is start off with one of each sex, and within five years you’ll be owning your own Rolls. That is sheer bunk’. And the Hanham Mink Farm is big of its kind, too, with a total of 600 mink of both sexes quartered there comfortably and cared for even lavishly. Mink are preposterously small when they are born — somewhere about half the size of a cigarette — and completely bald. Mating takes place only in March, and lasts for just ten days. The baby mink — or kittens are born in May. But the birth is only the start of the trouble for David, Michael and their helpers. No strangers are allowed to go into the farm when the mink kittens are very young. The adult mink — they reach maturity at about five months old — kill their young at the slightest provocation, and at a certain stage of their development, the mink kittens eat each other if something upsets them. Some adults have litters of ten or more kittens, but the mink farmer is lucky — very lucky — if the final average is four kittens per mother. From birth, the kittens need a tremendous amount of care and supervision. Their food is also important, for the quality of their fur can well depend on their diet and general state of health. At the Hanham Mink Farm, the animals are fed on tripe, fish waste and cereal, and Mr. Roberts takes pains to ensure that nothing but the best is given them. He has a contract for tripe with a local meat firm, his fish waste comes direct from Grimsby, and the cereal — to a special formula — is imported from Canada, natural habitat of the mink. The cereal contains everything a mink needs to keep it happy and fit. The feed is weighed to make certain that the same portion is served every day (the mink feed only once daily) and all serving and eating utensils are sterilised. Apart from its food, the mink takes life pretty much as it comes. They are hardy little creatures, and used to a climate much more severe than ours — although they prefer the weather to he more consistent than it is here. And they are not really susceptible to a great many diseases, if treated and kept correctly. As they reach maturity at five months or so, the mink farmer usually sees little point in letting the kittens whose pelts are needed live over the age of six months. If he does, he cannot kill the adult until it is 18 months old. If the farmer makes a mistake about the time he kills his mink, he can be in real trouble. The mink must only he skinned when it is fur-primed, and this only occurs at six months of age, or at yearly intervals afterwards. If the mink is killed out of prime, the fur may drop out — with disastrous results for the lady wearing it. Killing, by the way, is done by gas, and is entirely painless. Mr. Roberts has equipped his farm with the latest machinery, much of it brought over from America (particularly the pelting, de-fatting and drying equipment). Out of the 600 mink on his farm, Mr Roberts will keep 125 females and 50. males for breeding purposes, and kill the rest. Even so, about eighty pelts are required for just one mink coat — and they must all be flawless and completely matching. Like other mink farmer’s, Mr. Roberts’ furs are sold under auction to the Hudson Bay Company in London, which is, strangely enough, the biggest fur centre in the world. Mr. Roberts will not sell his entire stock, however. He will keep some back to make up into stoles, which he himself disposes of. Last year, too, he made up something very special... a mink bikini,
