1300 Cichlid samples donated to the Cambridge Zoology Museum

We are happy the ~1300 formalin and ethanol preserved Lake Malawi cichlid specimen that we brought back from our 2016 field trip will be part of the collection of the University Museum of Zoology.

Thanks to A. Tyers, A. Ford, I. Wilson (all Bangor University), M. Du, G. Vernaz (Uni Cambridge) and M. Malinsky (Uni Basel) for their efforts in jarring fish, E. Miska and R. Durbin and the Wellcome Trust for financial support, J. Head and M. Lowe from the museum for their support in making this possible, and many others.
