Fishes of Texas

by h. gillespie

I’ve had a lot of fun this fall helping out with the Fishes of Texas project at the Texas Memorial Museum/Texas Natural History Collections the past couple of months. Eventually, every single fish specimen in the collection will be photographed and added to the online database! I’m helping to take some of the photos. I’m also sifting through all of the Central Stoneroller (Campostoma anomalum) collections (of which there are 335 collections) to make sure they’re all identified correctly. They can sometimes get confused with Roundnose Minnows (Dionda spp.). Here are a few photos of my adventures so far! Enjoy!
