Red Sea Gyotaku
Originating in Japan during the 19th century, 'Gyotaku' (meaning "fish print") was developed to preserve the exact size of their trophy catch, and over the years has evolved into a beautiful art form.

We have a wide variety of local and exotic types of fish prints in standard or custom sizes. Click here for more info.
