Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory Ichthyology Collection - Marine records

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Aug 15, 2017 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT) Ichthyology Collection was established in 1981. It contains over 38,000 databased lots and about 250,000 specimens including 90 holotypes and 500 paratype lots. The collection was founded by a significant donation from NT Fisheries, and has subsequently continued to grow through MAGNT field collecting activities, voucher collections lodged by external researchers (e.g. the Arid Zone and JETINDOFISH collections), museum exchanges and public donations.

The collection's emphasis is on the marine, estuarine and freshwater fishes of Northern and Central Australia, Southeast Asia and the Indo-West Pacific. One of the collections strengths is the large and diverse holdings of tropical gobies.

Data downloaded from ALA (http://collections.ala.org.au/public/show/co42), taxa matched to World Register of Marine Species. This dataset excludes non-marine taxa.
