Freshwater fishes of Myanmar
We are expanding the Museum's collection of freshwater fishes from Myanmar (Burma), introducing new species.
Our work focuses on collecting freshwater fishes from Southeast Asia, particularly Myanmar. Fishes from Myanmar are not well-studied historically, but more than 30 new species have been described in the last 10 years.
By collecting and studying these species, we will better understand the biogeography of this region and how it developed.
