Step 1: Get a Fresh Fish That Is Dead and Its Organs Are Not Removed Yet

Today, I dissected a fish in science class.

you need 4 things to do this

1. 1 or 2 fresh dead fish(es)

2. Operation gloves

3. Dissection equipment (such as dissection scissor. dissection knife etc.)

(not necessary but we want the fish fresh, so something that has a cool surface would help [really cold].)

You might wanna cover your nose too. Cause' it stinks

I suggest big fishes. Its easier to work with

Step 2: Get Dissecting!

Cut the fish with a scissors or a knife (scissors recommended) from the anus ( the hole on the bottom ) to the mouth.

Be really careful. The fish's organs (especially the swim bladder) are really fragile , especially the swim bladder.

Step 3: Observe...

Open up the fish,

Takes notes, ask your teacher if you do not know the functions of the organ.

Don't forget to clean up after you have done everything! I dunno how to clean up XD

    Did you ever go to the doctor? Did you ever have a pet that you brought to the vet? Do you think that medicine would have ever been possible without the valuable learning from dissection of animal or human bodies?

    Haha true but, In my school we can't skip classes. I didn't really want to do it, though.
