Potential artefacts in morphometric analyses of fish: effects of formalin preservation on 0+ grayling

Authors


Abstract

In 0+ grayling, 2 months of preservation in a 4% formalin solution usually caused decreases in various body lengths and fin areas and increases in various body widths. These effects of formalin were variable between two grayling populations and among three length classes of one population.
