California State University, Long Beach Fishes
The CSULB fish collection consists of ~2,300 lots containing 21,000 specimens preserved in isopropanol or ethanol. About half of the lots have locality and date data, and these are mainly from the marine waters of southern California, northeastern Mexico, and Mississippi, and the fresh waters of southern California. The remainder of the specimens lack detailed data and cover a worldwide array of taxa. A separately housed teaching collection is used for Vertebrate Zoology and Ichthyology courses.
