Pike (Northern) Fish Printing Replica (Young)
Northern Pike Fish Printing Replica (Young)
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.
Northern pike are voracious predators and are closely related to muskellunge fish. The northern pike is found in many northern lakes and streams and feature rounded tail fins which differentiates them from muskies which have a pointed tail fin.
