1. If the wording "investigations of bacteriological changes in the ocean" means study of the bacteria of the sea and of the sea bottom completely unrelated to fish and marine products, the answer is no. The department does study microfauna in the whole environment of fish as it is applied to fish preservation.

2. Answered by No. 1.

3. No. The fisheries research board requires one general bacteriologist at the Ph.D. level. The fish inspection laboratory now being organized in Newfoundland may need one or two bacteriologists at the B.Sc. level. There is difficulty in recruiting bacteriologists with Ph.D. degrees, but not with B.Sc. degrees.

4. The fisheries research board in conjunction with the graduate school of Dalhousie university has within recent years given bacteriological training to approximately eight students who received graduate degrees from the university.

5. No.
