Grouper Fish Printing Replica
Fish printing, the Japanese art of Gyotaku, is an excellent way to combine science and art. Each fish replica has been cast in flexible, non-toxic plastics from real fish specimens. The casting image is raised on one side of the replica; the reverse is flat for easy handling. Simply ink the fish and roll on paper to “capture” the species as a print. When finished, replicas can be easily cleaned with soapy water. We also offer a variety of washable block inks, ink rollers, and rice paper to enhance your fish printing activities.
Groupers typically having a stout body and a large mouth and are not built for long-distance swimming. They swallow prey whole, consuming fish, octopus, crab, and lobster. They lie in wait, rather than chasing in open water, with their mouth and gills forming a powerful sucking system that pulls their prey in from a distance.
