Fishes of Texas Project Documentation

This section is under construction and updated versions of the data provided here will soon be in an interactive Tableau dashboard.

All data donors and associated information are listed below. Institution codons usually conform to the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists' (Sabaj Pérez, 2010) accepted codons except in instances for those institutions not included in that publication or that requested that we use different codons. Note that many institutions have subsumed smaller collections during their histories and thus this list indirectly includes many more collections. The TNHC, for example, has acquired and subsumed collections formerly at University of Texas Marine Science Institute (UTMSI), Midwestern State University (MWSU), Texas Tech University (TTU), Texas A&M University at Kingsville (TAIC), The University of Texas at Brownsville (UTB), Lamar University, Northeastern Louisiana University (NLU) and continues to acquire additional "orphaned" collections.

For a summary of our project's data holdings and status users should look at the table below as well as Version Tracking, and Data Tracks.

Fishes of Texas Project data donors (track 1 and 2 only) showing location and relative contribution of records. Note that records from the National Fish Collection of South Africa in Grahamstown, Eastern Cape are not shown here.
