While the primary emphasis of UAIC has been to serve in the study and documentation of Alabama freshwater and marine fishes, the collection contains much more diversity. A significant number of fish species inhabiting aquatic ecosystems from other areas in North America are represented in the collection, as well as collections from Central and South America, Europe, and Asia.
