Bluegill 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.
Bluegill are members of the sunfish family and can grow to several pounds and reach a length of 9–13 inches. Feeding on small fish, insects, crustaceans and worms, they are very territorial, especially during breeding season. Young bluegill are consumed by larger bass and other fish, snakes, birds and mammals. Native to North America, this species has been introduced widely throughout the world, where it is often used as both a game and food fish.
