Hello all,

A colleague has some juvenile trout (4-8 inches long) that have been fixed
in 10% NBF then stored in ethanol. He would like to count the mandibular
pores located on the underside of the lower jaw. Can anyone suggest a stain
or procedure which would make these external pores more visible? They would
prefer to stain the area directly and not process/paraffin embed, etc.. Any
suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
