    Oceanic White Tip Shark Overview

    Found throughout the world in tropical waters, the Oceanic Whitetip Shark is most often found far from shore in very deep water. Spending most of it’s time near the surface, oceanographer Jacques Cousteau considered this to be the world’s most dangerous shark that has been linked to attacking the survivors of ship and plane accidents at sea. Recent studies indicate that populations have declined by as much as 70%, due in part to their use in shark fin soup. The distinctive rounded dorsal, anal and tail fins are beautifully tipped in white with mottled patterns.

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”!
