This study presents an adaptation of current methodologies for preparing mitotic chromosomes from fishes, optimized for use in the field. The high‐quality preparations obtained using this modified methodology is suitable for subsequent chromosomal analysis. Importantly, this method is particularly useful when specimen collection sites are far from research laboratories or when researchers are working with highly sensitive species that do not survive long outside of their natural habitats.
