by New Wave Taxidermy
Until recently, “fish taxidermy” was the method of turning a captured dead fish into a preserved wall mount. The fish was skinned, mounted, dried and painted. That was the process.
Without the proper climate, this dated process often resulted in the deterioration of the mount. Still being marketed as “fish taxidermy,” our fish mounts are spectacular fiberglass replicas and reproductions that are much more realistic in appearance.
By using your photos of the fish along with our own reference photos of the species we will create a replica of your fish according to the special coloring, markings, measurements and/or weight you request. The finished mount looks extremely real and alive versus dead and mounted. It’s a new look at an old art.
Today’s technology and advanced products, combined with 40 years of experience, allow us to show an enormous amount of detail and create incredibly superior fish mounts.
Our mounts have realistic eyes, amazing scale detail and natural poses. The brilliant coloration is achieved by coloring techniques and airbrushing intricate details that give each fish its unique character.
