Dissecting a fish

  1. 1. Dissecting a fish
  2. 2.  First of all, you must go out and collect/catch fish.
  3. 3. Preparation  Must prepare the area where you wish to dissect the fish.  Get all the equipment ready and clean before beginning.  You will need a knife, scalpel, chopping board, tweezers and scissors.  Some people may also want gloves/protection for hands and clothes.
  4. 4. Process of Dissection  First of all, you need to cut the fish at the neck. It is important that you do not fully cut the neck or else there will be a lot of blood.  Once the neck is cut, you slit right down the middle of the fish’ body.
  5. 5.  You must ensure that you do not cut too deeply into the body or else you will destroy the fish’ organs.  You can cut down the fish using a knife or a scissors.  When you have slit the fish fully, down to the gill, then you can remove the organs and get a closer look inside the fish.
  6. 6.  Remove the organs using the knife, scalpel or tweezers.
  7. 7.  When you have removed the organs, you can identify them and learn about all the different types of organs and their function.
  8. 8.  Dissecting the fish yourself allows you to explore all the different parts of the fish in such a detailed fashion. (fish eye and lens(left) in detail)
  9. 9.  Dissecting a fish is a great way to learn about the anatomy of the fish in-depth and how its internal body works.
