Abstract: At the request of the Government of Malta James Hornell arrived in Valletta on April 17th 1931, for the purpose of making a rapid survey of the present condition of the coastal fisheries of the islands of Malta and Gozo, with a view to propose measures for their development and if possible for their protection against the rapid depletion which it has been alleged is taking place. A month being the time allotted to the inquiry it is obvious that while this is sufficient to pursuit of certain important generalizations being come to, particularly in regard to the organization of the Department of Fisheries, it is utterly inadequate for the solution of problems requiring a detailed knowledge of the life-histories of the locally important food-fishes; this knowledge does not exist and cannot be available even in the outline until several years of carefully organized investigation have been devoted thereto.
