Trout Fish Printing Replica (Adult)
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.
Trout are one of the best-known North American freshwater fish. They live in cool, clean streams, although several species live in the ocean and spawn in freshwater environments, similar in manner to salmon. The largest trout grow to over 50 pounds, and all species are predatory on smaller fish and insects. With the increasing popularity of catch and release trout fishing, many streams once again have large breeding specimens that spawn to help replenish local trout populations.
