Dear Coral List,
I would like to post the following message in an appropriate forum on Coral List. Please advise on how to do proceed as I have not posted here before. I do have an account chilejim at hotmail.com:

The research department at Toledo Institute for Development and Environment (TIDE) Belize, is seeking contact with an ichthyologist who can advise on assembling bones for display of 6ft Goliath Grouper skeleton in our visitor centre. The fish weighed in at 250lbs, found floating dead in Port Honduras Marine Reserve, managed by TIDE, in April 2014. Necropsy revealed stingray spines penetrating through stomach into ribcage. Head was preserved in ethanol and seeking advice on long term treatment. Aim to display skeleton and fully preserved head in our educational visitor centre, promoting community awareness of this endangered species. 

Thanks in advance,

James Foley
Science Director
Toledo Institute for Development and Environment
Punta Gorda
