The Great International Fisheries Exhibition

Excerpt from The Great International Fisheries Exhibition: Crustaceans I have been requested to read to you a short Paper on "Crustaceans." The Crustaceans are a large class of articulated animals whose distinguishing feature to the mere outside observer is that they are covered over the whole of their bodies and legs by a shell of more or less hardness, and it is this total covering in a coat of mail which mainly sets them apart from other classes of animals. They are found on the land, in the fresh water, and in the salt water: and, amongst themselves, are divided into two distinct varieties, ie., the "Sessile-eyed" crustacean, in which the eye lies flat in its socket, with just the amount of mobility and scope of vision which the eyes of most animals have; and the "stalk-eyed" crustaceans, in which the animal has a certain limited power of projecting its eye, at its own will, beyond its socket or immediate surroundings, and so obtaining a considerably enlarged sphere of vision. With the single exception of the common river crayfish I shall confine myself to-day to the crustaceans whose home is in the sea.
