Folks

After almost 20 years, I'm going to be returning to some work on fish reproductive investment.
In my PhD I used Bouin's fixative to fix and store fish gonads prior to doing egg counts, measurements etc., but am looking for a less toxic option for our new work.
I imagine things have moved on a bit in the last 2 decades  - have they? Can anyone recommend chemicals that aren't going to cause health and safety nightmares?

Cheers

Chris
