  • I bought this for my daughter's Apologia biology class that she will use later this year. It was shipped quickly and in great shape.
    Well worth it!

  • My family is one that loves to fish, so when we saw that Apologia Biology had a fish dissection scheduled I had originally planned to use a fresh one. I decided to purchase one instead to ensure we would have a good specimen on hand (rather than HOPE we could make a fresh catch). The fish was beautifully formed, and in wonderful shape. Thank you!

      Perch, large 9-12", plain

      An extra large plain preserved grey perch specimen. The large 9"-12" size and easily located structures and organs make this preserved grey perch specimen superior for fish dissections. Species is typically Pomadayses magranthus. Occasionally we substitute yellow perch, Perca flavescens, based on supply availability.

      10+ pricing is based on bulk-packed specimens. When necessary, you will receive a combination of 10-packs and individually packed specimens to fill your order.

      Note: Specimens are initially preserved with a formaldehyde solution, the best animal tissue fixative. The formaldehyde is then displaced first with water and finally with a glycol solution to produce a moist, low-fume specimen which will not decay over time.

      HST Specimen Guarantee

      In sealed, original packaging, our preserved specimens are guaranteed to remain fully preserved and free of decay for six months from the date of purchase.

      Once the original package is opened, use specimen within one month. For best results, observe the following storage procedures:

      • Store specimen in heavy-duty, zip-lock bags to minimize drying between dissections.
      • Specimen will slowly dry out or become contaminated in zip-lock bags; add a teaspoon of Specimen Holding Fluid to retain moisture.
      • Freezing or refrigeration is not necessary and may damage fragile tissues.

      Shipping Note: This item contains preserved specimens and only ships to a street address in the 50 US states.
