Stephen Di CerboDescriptionThis specimen is A China Rockfish, Sebastes nebulosus, printed in Oregon in 2004. They are perceived to be the tastiest of the rockfish, and like most of the west coast rockfish species are in population decline and currently, the annual harvest is heavily managed.
Kansetsu-ho is the indirect Gyotaku fish printing method. The support (silk) is adhered to the fish specimen and then the layered pigments are applied to the silk.KeywordsKansetsu-ho Gyotaku, Rockfish, Sebastes nebulosus, fishprintMedia
