Although this collection is no longer available, individual fish printing replicas are still available.
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. This collection includes Flounder, Grouper, Hogfish, Opaleye Perch, Salmon (Adult), Sea Star, Skate, Skipjack Tuna, and Squirrelfish.
