  • n. A fish of the family Cyprinodontidæ and genus Fundulus: same as killifish and mummychog.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • No skill can give the fish fattened by food selected and prepared by man the flavor of those which are nourished at the table of nature, and the trout of the artificial pouds in Germany and Switzerland are so inferior to the brook-fish of the same species and climate, that it is hard to believe them identical.
