Remarks sometimes record types of specimens caught (e.g. fish, mollusks, gastropods, crustaceans) and how common or abundant the are. Localities are not listed in this volume, but they were possibly traveling in the Bahamas in the earlier part of 1886 (based on the history of the ship's activities).
