Fishes of Texas

Fishes of Texas

The Fishes of Texas (FoTX) is a multifaceted project with the mission of making verifiable scientific information about Texas fishes available to the general public, scientists and wildlife managers. The project encompasses an exhibit, outreach activities, research, and, most importantly, a vast and growing database of specimens collected as much as 160 years ago and deposited in permanent museum collections, including our own and those of other universities, the federal government, and private museums.
