New Brunswick Museum - Fishes (NBM-FI)

The NBM zoological collections are a series of scientific research collections that document the diversity of the fauna of New Brunswick and northeastern North America. Significant portions of the collections date to the late 19th century, a testament to the research endeavors of a handful of dedicated New Brunswick natural scientists, many associated with the New Brunswick Natural History Society (1862-1932). There are eight separate zoological collections as follows; Invertebrates (exclusive of insects and molluscs), Insects, Molluscs, Fish, Fish Scales, Amphibians and Reptiles, Birds, and Mammals.
