Fish

Ichthyology is the study of fish. The IMNH fish collection includes approximately 1000 fluid-preserved lots of specimens. These collections represent most of Idaho’s 68 native and introduced species, with a geographic concentration in Southeast Idaho. Both lake and stream habitats are represented and included collections from Bear Lake and the Snake River and its tributaries.

Specimens are mostly collections from ISU faculty and student researchers.
