Stockfish is particularly prone to infestation with Bacon Beetle (Leather Beetle) may gain or lose weight according to season. The usual packing (wire-bound bales) is often inadequate, and when transshipment takes place shortage and damage are likely. Depreciation of loose portions from bales should not be admitted unless actual damage is proved. The usual means of marking is by tie-on labels, which may become detached, with the result that one consignee may receive more valuable bales at the expense of another importer.
