Fish taxidermy

Preparing and mounting fish and small reptiles

For the purpose of mounting, fish and reptiles must be fresh, and the fresher the better. Further on we will state a simple way to keep fish for a short period before skinning and mounting, as sportsmen out in the field will not always be able immediately to prepare specimens taken.

In this section we will be discussing the mounting of a fish, a turtle, a lizard and a crawfish.

The skinning and mounting is split up into 4 subsections

- Skinning fish
- Mounting fish

- Skinning turtle
- Mounting turtle

- Lizard mount

- Crawfish mount
