Notes on Manuscript Reports

The Manuscript Reports Series was established in the days of the Fisheries Research Board of Canada (FRB) and until that agency’s demise in early 1970s the series was called Fisheries Research Board Canada Manuscript Series which I have abbreviated to Fish. Res. Bd. Canada MS Rep. Later on the series was continued with various names such as Fisheries and Marine Service Manuscript Report Series or Canadian Manuscript Report Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences. I abbreviated the names as appropriate.

All of the Canadian Manuscript Report Series can be found on the internet at the Federal Science Libraries site.
