The careful work done by a few investigators has shown the relation existing between our common fresh water fish and the minute Crustacea of the streams and lakes. The results of these investigations prove the importance of the Entanostraca as a source of food supply for the young fry of many species, and even for the adults of some. The most extensive work upon this subject is that done by Dr. S. A. Forbes of the University of Illinois. An account of the methods pursued and of the results obtained is given in the bulletins of the Illinois State Laboratory of Natural history; Bulletins Nos. 2, 3 and 6, and articles VII and VIII, Vol. II.
