adamsummers|These fishes are stained with alcian blue and alizarin red dyes to make the skeletal tissues pop out through skin and flesh. The technique consists of a mix of hydrogen peroxide to bleach the fish, a digestive enzyme and glycerin make the flesh seem to disappear. The photos are shot on a color corrected LED light table. All this was discovered and refined over 18 years by a professor at the University of Washington, who also happens to be the scientific consultant on Pixar’s Finding Nemo.
