Preparation of small otoliths for microscopic examination

North American Journal of Fisheries Management 7(2): 309-311
Preparation of small otoliths for microscopic examination
We present a method for the preparaiton of small otoliths that consists of mounting otoliths in thin-section epoxy on an acetate sheet. After mounting, the otoliths can be handled easily during grinding, polishing, and microscopic observation. Mounting on acetate also allows for easy preparation of thin sections. We have found this technique to give satisfactory results and is more rapid than other published techniques.
