Description

The Ichthyological Collection of the University Museum Bergen houses more than 24000 lots. The vast majority of samples is stored in ethanol. The collection has a focus on samples from the Northeast Atlantic, however, it holds specimens of localities from all around the world including fishes from Antarctica and the Mid-Atlantic ridge (Mar-Eco project 2004) being a valuable reference collection for deep-sea species. The collection is still growing taking in new samples mainly in cooperation with the University’s faculty of Biology, the Institute of Marine Research (Norway), and the University of Tromsø for documenting diversity, changes in diversity, first records from hitherto un-sampled regions and re-collection of species represented by aged specimens lacking a tissue sample.
