After just over a year of work we’ve recently completed making the UBC Fish Collection notebooks available online!
These notebooks contain over 11,000 records featuring data on almost a million different specimens of fish! (If you’re not sure if that’s a lot, it’s the third largest collection of its kind in Canada.) Some of the records date back more than 100 years, and the information contained in these records will be invaluable to scientists studying how life in the oceans has changed in the last century.
This project was done in collaboration with the Beaty Biodiversity museum, and you can find more information about the Fish Collection on their website.
