A Virtual Museum on the State's Fish Biodiversity

Document Search

Welcome to the Fishes of Texas (FoTX) Document Search (Beta)! This tool allows users to virtually explore our growing collection of publicly available, but often hard to obtain, documents (“dark documents”) likely to contain valuable historic information about the Fishes of Texas.

We started this effort with 429 dusty paper copies of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Dingell-Johnson Federal Aid Project Reports, mostly from the 1950s-1970s (see our index to them in our FoTX Sandbox). There are potentially another couple of thousand or so of these obscure reports we could add, but here provide a sample of what’s possible.
