I use a .012” (height of letters) Micro-Stamp @microstamp to mark the metal parts. For the wood pieces I use 1/32” stamps of my initials “WRR” and add a date in a few places. All parts are marked where they can not be easily seen but with close study in a museum lab they should find them.

Rockfish offer a unique opportunity to study longevity because they include more than 100 species that have evolved to exhibit a vast range of life spans, from 11 years to more than 200 years. The analysis revealed a set of genes associated with changes in their life spans. While some of those genes were already known to regulate longevity in humans and many other species, others were a surprise.
