The Cost of Mounting a Fish

how much does a fish mount cost

Mounting a fish is a great way to preserve the memory of a catch. The cost varies depending on several factors, including the type of fish (warm water, cold water, saltwater, and billfish), the size of the fish, and whether a skin mount or a replica is chosen.

Market Rates for Fish Mounts:

  • Warmwater Species (e.g., Bass, Pike, Walleye): Typically, these cost between $10 to $15 per inch.
  • Coldwater Species (e.g., Salmon, Trout): These can range from $15 to $19 per inch.
  • Saltwater Species (excluding Billfish): The cost is usually between $18 to $22 per inch.
  • Billfish: These are on the higher end, costing between $20 to $25 per inch.

Replicas, which are made from fiberglass molds and offer a durable and long-lasting option, are generally in the price range of $12 to $18 per inch, making them an attractive alternative for those who wish to release their catch while still preserving the memory.  Some outfits charge upwards of $25-$30 per inch however these outfits are normally producing museum quality replicas which can sometimes take up 30-40 hours of an artists time.
