Surely paleo man could identify the organs of different animals, after some personal attempts that only left me feeling frustrated I've come in hopes of finding a good samaritan with a knowledge of anatomy, hopefully marine anatomy!
Does anyone know how to identify the thyroid on a Fish?
Specifically a fresh uncleaned sardine?

I found the thyroid, it is almost immediately below the gills right before the heart. It is round, like a ball in fresh sardines and it is the size of a rain drop.

When you combine that with the fact that many people are exposed to known endocrine disruptors (fluorine, bromine,bpa) then it seems reasonable to simply eat the whole animal. For example if you would normally eat a small fish worth of protein per day, then you can probably afford the calcium found in it's bones, the vit a in its' liver and the t1,t2,t3,t4 and calcitriol in its' thyroid without any toxicity, after all every other animal in the animal kingdom does this pretty much every day.

Google says that thyroid follicles are widely distributed in the fish body. the first google hit, which talks about cyclids (tilapia) says that follicles are in several regions: around the eyes, in the jaws, etc. Afraid they are different from us. Try to get one from a steer.
