How to collect and store specimens

There are many ways to collect fishes, molluscs or mayflies in the wild.

  • For freshwater fish, have a look at ABC Taxa for details how to collect and prepare samples. http://www.abctaxa.be/volumes/volume-8-manual-atbi/volumes/volume-8-manual-atbi/chapter-22/chapter_22.pdf
  • For freshwater fish, there is also the option just to freeze the freshly collected materials and leave all the preservation task to the FREDIE team.
  • The vouchers must be stored in a collection which guarantees the access of external scientists and which sent vouchers to other scientists.
  • Vouchers collected by the FREDIE team or which can or shall not be stored elsewhere will be stored at ZFMK (fishes), MfN (molluscs) and Lausanne (mayflies).
