Abstract: This is the sixth of eight field journals by Dr. Charles M. Breder Jr. written during his fieldwork in Florida from 1958 to 1974. This diary covers Dr. Breder’s experiments at his home in Englewood in September 1963-July 1964. Like the other journals in this series, the content of this work focuses on Dr. Breder’s attempts to record fish sounds off of his dock. Dr. Breder notes the impact of light and temperature, among other factors, on the frequency and volume of sounds. The noises of Galeichthys receive a special focus. Unlike the previous Florida journals, however, the observations in this work are mostly based on sonic checks rather than actual tape recordings of sounds. Throughout the journal, Dr. Breder records his various technological and weather-related setbacks. Additionally, the journal contains Dr. Breder’s observations of terrestrial animals, such as birds and raccoons. Dr. Breder’s finances and other personal matters are also discussed.
