This volume is a journal of travel and field research activities on the vessel Grampus in 1915. There is no creator name in this volume, but the 1916-1917 volume of this set is attributed to W.W. Welsh. Field work appears to be focused on herring sampling off the coast of Maine, Massachusetts, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. The front of the book lists tin tag numbers (10501-10622), herring sample numbers (1-54) and samples of other species. Station numbers recorded in the journal span from approximately 10266 to 10339. Lengths are often recorded for each sample.
