Fish gross and histologic anatomy – FREE DOWNLOAD.

Have you ever wondered what’s what in a fish? Whether you’re gutting them for the frypan, performing a necropsy for sampling, or treating a fish, it’s handy to know what’s where in a fish.

And… Have you ever wondered what a fish looks like when they’re sliced wafer-thin and special stains are applied? Pictured above is a histology image of a baby Atlantic salmon. This is how trained Veterinary Pathologists (like myself) examine fish for diseases. We can look for patterns of organ damage at the cellular level, using microscopes, to arrive at a diagnosis. With this method, I’m able to examine fish from all parts of the country, and even the world!

See the pdf document for a labelled diagram of fish anatomy, comparing a line drawing to the histology presentation.
