    Coho Salmon Overview

    Coho are endemic to the Pacific Ocean and the rivers flowing into it from northern Japan to the Anadyr River in Russia, and from Point Hope, Alaska south to Monterey Bay, California. It has been introduced also into many parts of the world. It can be distinguished from the Chinook, Steelhead and Rainbow by the fact that it has spots on the upper half of the tail, while the latter have spots over the entire tail. During spawning males develop a red stripe along the sides, like a Rainbow. An estimated 85 percent of native Pacific Coho Salmon return to spawn in the same stream where they began their life.

Custom Fish Mount - FAQ

What is a Release Mount?

A Release Mount is a mount of your trophy fish produced without any of the actual fish parts. Almost all saltwater mounts are Release Mounts, which are constructed of lightweight composite materials and are cast from pre-existing molds. These mold impressions were originally taken from carefully selected fish. Your authentic mount is hand-painted and one-of-a-kind.

How long will my mount take to create?

Normal lead time is 4 to 6 weeks. Expedite Service is available on most mounts as an add-on. Each task requires precision workmanship and must pass final inspection before moving on to the next process. You can rest assured that no compromises are ever taken in the production of your custom mount.

How are mounts attached to the wall?

It hangs like a picture. A sturdy hanger comes balanced and installed in each mount. All that is required is a screw or nail to be inserted into the wall. Our lightweight mounts are produced using hollow-cast fiberglass. For outdoor locations, we offer a 2-piece stainless steel hanging bracket system that is extra strong and burgular-resistant.

Are real fish still being used?

No. The marine taxidermy industry produces 99% of all mounts using composite materials. The change from “Skin” to “Composite Mounts” occurred in the 70’s and 80’s, and has not been well publicized. After measurements and photographs are taken, release your fish alive and order a “Release Mount”!
