Unsung Heroes of the Collections

Join us as we hear about some of the more obscure collectors who have added specimens to the vast collection over the ages.


Each specimen in the 70 million-strong collection we look after has a unique story of how it found its way here. They range from the famous voyages of Captain Cook and Charles Darwin to those found by chance in dusty attics. Join fish curator James Maclaine as he looks back over the ages and tells the stories behind some of the more obscure collectors and the specimens they donated to the nation's fish collection.
