Caught a stingray and it had the little ones in my cooler. Has anyone ever encased one in acrylic and made a paper weight. Thought I'd try it for Christmas gifts. Is there anything special you have to do? Never tried this before.

Preserving

This works for starfish so maybe it will work for rays.

Soak it in 70% isopropyl alcohol / 30% water overnight. Also, get a syringe and inject this solution into many different area from underneath the fish.

After doing this let it dry out real well on a paper towel, out in the sun if at all possible because it'll likely stink a little if they're like starfish. You might also want to weigh down the edges of the wings so that they do not curl up as it dries, unless you want them curled. Good luck.
