I did a fish project at our lab.  I processed the blocks the same as
everything else and stained them our H&E protocol.  I did not notice any
difference in the cutting.  This was a big project 100 fish and 15 blocks
per fish.

I have someone who would like us to process, cut, and stain "fish blocks"
for them.

Having never, ever worked with fish histology, I have some questions for
those of you who do:
1. Would I be able to use the same processing protocol we use for our human
2. Would I be able to stain them with our regular H&E protocol?
3. Are they different/difficult to cut?

Any information you could share with me would be greatly appreciated.
