Research on marine organisms
The URM Fish Collection was established by Dr. Tetsuo Yoshino of the University of the Ryukyu’s since the 1960’s, and was replaced to our foundation in 2011 with the retirement of Dr. Tetsuo Yoshino.
Responsible research scientists and graduate students at academic or research institutions may borrow specimens from the collection for scientific purposes. Students who wish to use our specimens must have a letter of loan request from supervisor. Visitors can also use the laboratory equipment to observe the specimens at our facility.
Collection date is noted in the specimen log in handwriting, and is currently being digitalized. We are continuing to update the database and open to the public as they are updated.
