Preparing sagittae for examination of daily growth increments of young‐of‐the‐year fishes: a modification of the embed method
Abstract:A modification (termed the slide‐glass‐embed‐method, SGEM) of the embed method for preparing fish sagittae is described. The SGEM is based on a very simple principle: a dome of mixed resin containing the embedded sagittae loses hardness after being heated and can be easily cut with dissecting scissors.
