Salt Water Fish
How wonderful would it be to have your favourite saltwater fish on a mount in your living room? Well, you actually can. At Mcginnity Marine Art, we create replicas of various kinds of saltwater fishes found in Cairns. The process is quite simple, and with detailed and distinct artistic skills, you can have a life-sized and strikingly similar replica of any fish.
As a business passionate about sea life conservation, you don’t have to worry about the safety of the fishes we mould. They are merely caught, measured, photographed and returned to their natural habitat. We use glass fibres and other composite materials with high-quality paints to create high-quality fish replicas that are resistant to environmental elements such as moisture, heat, etc. We ensure complete precision in visual and anatomical aspects of the fish mould and restrict our saltwater fishes’ replicas only to catch and release fishes.
Painting is the most critical aspect of our craft as it determines how lifelike your fish replica would look. So we use different types of paints from iridescent colours to transparent lacquers to capture the complete essence of your fish.
We stock an extensive collection of saltwater fishes which means you can rest assured that you will find what you are looking for with us. Such fishes include Angelfish, Cardinalfish, Butterflyfish, Gobies, Damselfish, Clownfish, Maori Wrasse, Parrotfish, Triggerfish, Surgeonfish, Trout, and many others. No matter the fish you are looking for, whether it is extinct, endangered, or common. You will find everything with us, and we can easily recreate one for you.
But if you have caught a big fish yourself and wish for it to be recreated so you can keep that special catch in your memory after releasing it back into the water. All we need is the right measurements and photographs, and you will get exactly what you caught.
