Necropsy Video – Necropsy, Biopsy, Injection and More

This is an old video, but cutting off a fishes’ head isn’t something that goes out of style. The techniques demonstrated are gross. And not everyone does these things the same way. All fish involved in the video were DEEPLY if not TERMINALLY anesthetized. For example, the fish we decapitate was motionless with no gill movement. It was DEAD.

There’s an amalgam of videos here, some of the videos are my hands, many are most obviously not. The ones with the pretty fingernails are not me. Ha ha ha ha.

Sound was edited out of the video in case you’re banging on the sides of your computer speakers to hear some sort of audio.  lol
