    Question about taxidermy

    If I go deep sea fishing and get lucky enough to catch a big game fish such as a shark or marlin (I understand the catch and release) What is the process to get a replica or whatever so I can have it mounted on an exterior wall back at my home back in the states?

    I would recommend contacting some of the fishing charters and asking?
    I would be interested in hearing how they respond.

    Interesting article on "release" fiberglass mounts. http://www.fishmountstore.com/taxide...ase-mount.html

    If you google "shark marlin taxidermy replicas" there are "About 1,220,000 results".

    I'm having a taxidermist here at home making a replica of it for me. I also had a tooth of his made into a necklace for me and of course they gave us 15 - 20 lbs. of his meat.
