We walk our dogs past the Menai Strait everyday.  Rob, who's a keen fisherman and lives on the waterfront, knows I print.  He ran out after me one day with a small bag containing this pollock.

Pollock are plentiful in the local water and they are a member of the Cod family.  So it has three fins across the top and two on the bottom.  These are quite fleshy compared to a bass or bream, which makes them quite tricky to print from.  They retract much faster and also smudge when printing. 

This pollock print will fit in a standard A3 frame.  It's printed on a Japanese paper which has been 'wet mounted' to a second piece of Japanese paper.  If you can imagine after printing over a 3D object, the paper gets a bit out of shape and wouldn't look good in a frame.  So the wet mounting is to flatten the print.  This process is an ancient technique practiced in Japan for over 1000 years. 

Every print I do comes with a certificate explaining when and where the specimen was caught and when it was printed. 

It will be posted out in a poster tube, wrapped in acid free tissue paper with the certificate.  Postage to the UK is free.
