A great sedative for transporting, sorting and grading fish. This is an FDA-approved, ANADA #200-226, high-grade brand of MS-222 (tricaine methanesulfonate), which is an anesthetic/tranquilizer of fish and other cold-blooded aquatic organisms. When used properly, it induces a temporary state of immobilization that is rapidly reversed when the animal is placed back in clean water.
