Behind the scenes of the public galleries of the Australian Museum resides one of its greatest resources, the research collections. These collections by any definition are immense: more than four million insects, 2,000,000 mollusc lots, 1,000,000 fishes, 200,000 archaeological and anthropological objects and 60,000 rocks and minerals. (Figures current in June, 1999).
If you’re interested in fish and want to find answers to questions like “What is the biggest fish? … What is the deepest-living fish? … How do Electric Rays produce electricity? ” or want to see more interesting photos or movies about fish like “Mr Blobby” then make sure you visit the Australian Museum Fish Site.
