Walleye 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.

Walleye are found throughout North America and are named for their large, glassy eyes which glow at night in the light, much like cat eyes do. The walleye is the largest species of the North American perch, reaching a weight of 25 pounds. Prized by anglers, this species is highly aggressive, streamlined and fast. It makes a beautiful, well-defined print showing this species large eyes used for spotting insects and streamlined shape for quick movement in water.
