Iím part of a group that produces skeletal fish art. Itís kind of a hybrid between traditional taxidermy and museum preparation. I am looking for some input as to what species are big in this area (salt or fresh water) and what would make a cool skeleton. Check out some our work @ www.helterskeletons.com and let me know what you think

No, but the things that eat squid do. I've never been squid fishing before, but I have seen a lot diving off of Florida. I think that they are pretty cool and rank high on the intelligence scale.

Your stuff is well cool! I know how to do this with mammal skeletons (in an amatuer way) and would be interested in trying it with fish. Do you use chemicals to remove the flesh? Do fish have ligaments like animals? If so when you use the chemicals or whatever method do the ligaments remain or do you use some other method to keep them together?
