In the back garden of my small terraced house in Wiltshire, UK I have a fish farm.
Rainbow Trout and European Perch. I am growing fish and fresh vegetables.
Aquaponics UK. Trickling water and sunshine. Leaks, wet feet and cold hands!
Along the way I get distracted by the food I grow and cook. People I meet and places I travel to.

Aquaponics UK Trout autopsy Part 2
The first cut was from tail to head. Then to expose the internal organs. Two transverse cuts.
Thats the way I would normally clean a fish and it seemed sensible.
The remaining cuts were to remove first an area of normal scales(skin) and then anarea of infected scalesand lastly an area which covered the change between normal/infected.
The guts and the flesh appeared normal.
Now I had wanted to do this in the kitchen but Mrs Fishcake said NO.
The extra light outside helped with the photo. However the sub zero temperatures may have contributed to camera shake.
I had constructed the microscope to be used with the smart phone out of its case.
In the event I forgot. This may account for some loss of detail.
The three photos from the microscope show those three areas.
In reality in a home situation there is little you can do.
