Tulane University’s Royal D. Suttkus Fish Collection

It is a horror movie director’s dream of a natural history collection. You find it by driving 10 miles southeast of New Orleans, to a piece of land that is part swamp, part forest, on a bend in the Mississippi River, down a dirt track named Wild Boar Road.

The research collection of fishes at TUBRI is the largest collection of post-larval fishes in the world, with over 7 million specimens in over 200,000 lots.
