     otolith removal
Description: The otolith is a bone-like structure found in the inner ear of fish. The otolith can be sectioned and polished to expose growth rings that can be seen using a microscope. Counting the growth rings will determine the age of the fish. Fish from tropical climates grow year-round and aging fish with otoliths is difficult because growth rings are not formed uniformily.
