Invertebrates at UAMN

The Aquatics collection includes important holdings of North Pacific invertebrates, which have been used by Nora Foster to produce summaries of the invertebrate diversity of Prince William Sound. We worked with faculty at the College of Fisheries & Ocean Sciences at UAF to catalog and digitize information associated with the specimens.

These new records can be found here


UAF Ichthyology lab
