University of Wisconsin-Madison Zoological Museum - Fish (UWZM-F)

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Zoological Museum was established to be a center for research and educational support for the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It was likewise charged with acting as a depository for biological specimens and knowledge deriving from activities of State of Wisconsin agencies. It is dedicated to the preservation, study, and understanding of the vertebrate and aquatic fauna of Wisconsin, the Midwest, and other parts of the world. The Museum acquires, processes, accessions, and houses documented specimens resulting from field and laboratory research and the work of contributing agencies. The collections provide a library of primary information basic to studies of animal and human ecology, systematics and genetics, and morphology.
