LSU Fish Collection Making News
The LSUMNS Ichthyology Collection made the front page of LSU's 'The Pursuit' magazine with stunning cleared and stained fishes from Louisiana's coasts. The article in the magazine focuses on the intertwining cultures of art and science and highlights ichthyology postdoc Brandon Ballengée, who combines these two fields in a unique way to engage the public. In addition to an interview with Brandon, there are pictures of his work, as well as images showing a public outreach event last year in Grand Isle, LA. Our own star undergraduate, Link Morgan, even got his own picture in the magazine showing off a fish that he had personally cleared and stained. Great work from Brandon, and all who were involved. If you're on campus, go check out a copy and learn a little bit more about what we do, or stop by the museum and see some of the cleared and stained fishes in our collection!
