NANFA-L-- Frozen fish embryos?
Wed, 24 May 2006 04:17:39 EDT

I know that many zoos and other conservation groups have taken to freezing
embryos from rare animals hoping that someday they can be born and reintroduced
into the wild when more habitat is available. That would be probably be
sometime around the twelfth of never if current trends continue, but it's still
better than stuffed animals in a museum. does anyone know if fish embryos can
be done like that? Or is there another process for fish that is similar? For
some fish whose habitat is disappearing that maybe the only way to help these
fish survive. I haven't heard of anything similar for fish but most people
seem to be more worried about the big game type animals than odd or unusual
fish. Just a thought I had.
