This Ichthyology Collection is part of the Texas Natural History Collections (TNHC) at the University of Texas at Austin's Texas Memorial Museum. It is estimated that the Ichthyology Collection currently holds 676,384 specimens contained in approximately 30,000 jars. The Collection represents 180 countries, and over half of the specimens are from Texas. Loans are available to "researchers at recognized institutions with the facilities to properly house and care for the specimens." The site links to extensive indices for North America Freshwater Fishes and Texas Freshwater Fishes which include maps and images. The site also links to a searchable and browseable TNHC Fish Specimen Database containing 26,511 records. Note: The Fish Database is under construction, and may be unavailable on occasion.
