You are here: > Ocean Adventures > Fish Replicas and Kits for Fish Printing (Gyotaku)

Fish printing, or Gyotaku, incorporates science (fish diversity, anatomy, ecology), art (create colorful paintings, note cards, displays), math (measure and count fins, proportions, count fin rays), reading (use with stories about aquatic environments) and creative writing (write fact or fiction about the fish prints). All ages and abilities can enjoy creating beautiful, unique, artistic prints. We now offer a wide selection of fresh and saltwater varieties.
