In the course of a field trip to southern Alaska during the summer of 1936, Mr. George Willett of the Los Angeles Museum secured a collection of fishes in the vicinity of Petersburg. Through the courtesy of Mr. Earl N. Ohmer, superintendent of a shrimp cannery at Petersburg, Mr. Willett was permitted to accompany the shrimp fishermen on their boats during fishing operations. All fishes and marine invertebrates, usually thrown overboard after each haul, were saved and preserved in alcohol.
