In response to the ongoing events associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, suspension of non-essential UMMZ operations has been extended. This includes access to the collections via scientific visits or outgoing loans. Please also do not ship any specimens (gifts, exchange, loan returns, etc.) to the museum at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
The Division of Fishes of the Museum of Zoology is a research resource and teaching center dedicated to the study of fish evolution, phylogeny, distribution, ecology, and behavior. We have about 3.5 million catalogued specimens available for study. The collections are rich in specimens from the U.S., Mexico, Asia, Japan, the Neotropics, and Africa.
