Prepare a coelacanth? Surely people don’t eat the most ancient of all fish species -they are so rare that we once thought they were extinct! No, that’s not what this preparation means. The American Museum of Natural History’s series Shelf Life shows us how science labs and museums prepare specimens of coelacanth to preserve them for scientific study. Ichthyology Curator Melanie L. J. Stiassny takes us through the process as it has been done for various purposes. -Thanks, Julia Kramer!
