Fishes and their parts lend themselves well to the illustration of diverse concepts ranging from anatomical form and function to evolution and ecological niche. Teaching is enhanced by using actual specimens that can be handled. This paper describes methods for preparing bony structures and parts with soft tissues. The bony parts were prepared using a strong chlorine bleach solution. The items with soft tissue were prepared by freeze-drying. Procedures are given for the preparation and drying of these specimens by using a frost-free freezer. The drying times are discussed, and examples of finished specimens are illustrated and discussed.
