The collection of fishes is the largest and fastest growing of the collections in the SLU Vertebrate Museum. We have over 8,000 lots of fishes, containing some 85,000 specimens. Our holdings are rich in native species from southern Louisiana (particularly the Florida Parishes and the Lake Pontchartrain Basin) and adjacent regions. Additionally, we have large collections of freshwater fishes from Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize. In addition to the fluid specimens, we have over 2,000 archived tissue samples from fishes for genetic analyses. Most of the tissue samples have corresponding voucher specimens archived in the collection.
