The Jour. Asiatic Soc. of Bengal, 2-650, and the Amer. Jour. Sci., 1-32-199, record a fall of fishes near Feridpoor, India, on Feb. 19, 1830. They were of varying sizes. Some were “whole and fresh,” while others were “mutilated and putrefying.”
In witness depositions, some fish were reported as fresh, while others were “stinking and headless.”
Some of the fish weighed 1 ½ pounds each, while others were as much as 3 pounds.
