SEAMAP Archiving Center

Larval fish and fish egg samples, sorted to the lowest taxa level possible by the Polish Sorting and Identification Center, are returned to the SEAMAP Archiving Center for archiving and loan to researchers. Data entry for most of the returned, sorted samples is completed in an improved and simplified SEAMAP DMS. Samples cataloged to date represent 18 orders, 126 families, 235 genera and 245 species.

The SEAMAP Archiving Center, which is managed in conjunction with Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) in St. Petersburg, Florida, processes both specimen loans and requests for associated plankton survey environmental data.
