These advancements have also benefited the fishermen and enabled them to preserve their catch for a life long duration. All this could be done using a method known as fish Taxidermy. The methodology of fish reproduction has evolved with the time. In the past, fish reproduction was done to conserve various parts of fish that were inclusive of eyes, fins, and even the covering. The meat of the fish was replaced with another material known as stuffing, in order to fill in the empty space. However, despite of all these benefits the methodology has a disadvantage of being costly and a time consuming one.

In this day and age, these disadvantages have been covered and turned into advantages for the customers. The taxidermists are now providing their clienteles with fiberglass fish, which are able to faultlessly impersonate the actual fish. The introduction of newer and advanced methodologies within the field of fish taxidermy has made it possible for the experts to provide the clients with low weight and putrefy free hangings at reduced prices, and which also provides an option of unproblematic cleaning.

The professionals in this field offer the customers with a wide array of services, some of which include fish reproduction, fish mounting and fiberglass fish. Each service tends to have its own unique features. The methodology of fish reproduction is a simple one. In order to reproduce the fish, the taxidermist develops the fins and the body using the fiberglass. Once the model of the fish has been fully developed, the taxidermist also paints the model of the fish with the colors similar to the ones present in the real fish.

The art of fish reproduction varies from individual to individual, therefore, when hiring a person from this field one has to look at his work and do a little research before the hiring decision has been reached.

On the other hand, the fiberglass fish, also used in fish reproduction, is used to impersonate the original fish or even the representative fish belonging to a genus and size. The process of developing a custom fish made of fiberglass is a more complex and time consuming task as compared to the development of the fish that already has existing molds. As a consequence, making the custom made fish is much more expensive than the other category of the fish.

The process of preservation has been not only been limited to the field of the fishes.
