Hi Jim,
  I have cut shrimp with the shells on.  They were fixed in Davidson's
and the acetic acid in Davidson's softened them up enough to cut them.

We are looking at doing serial sections of a crayfish tail. Do we need
remove the chitin, if so how best to do this without affecting the
histology. Also is it best to embedd in paraffin or resin. If anyone
has a
protocol please send.
