About OSIC

The Oregon State Ichthyology Collection is a biodiversity library focused on documenting, understanding and protecting the fishes of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Curators, researchers and students use our specimens to discover new facts about the biodiversity of fishes and to help conserve that diversity.

From here, you can learn more about our mission and scope, follow our history, view a summary of our holdings, meet the people behind the fishes, or send us a message.
