Around the world, there are 34190 fish species (Elschemeyer and Fong, 2017). Colombian fishes are nearly 4339 fish species (eighteen fossil and 4321 actual species); representing 1313 genera, 267 Families, 15 Orders and two Classes. Forty three percent inhabits freshwater habitat. Most of the fish species are from Amazonas and Orinoco River Basins (Álvarez et al. 2013). Knowledge of species richness of fish comes mainly from regional research, monitoring associated with environmental permits for construction and energy infrastructure projects, field courses and curriculum reports to the community. Witnesses of this diversity are deposited in Biological Collections, usually administered by higher education institutions or research institutes. In Colombia, Maldonado (2006) reports 20 fish museums the most important not only for its geographical representation but also by their size are the National Institute of Natural Sciences at the National University of Colombia and the Museum of Alexander von Humboldt Institute. Ichthyology collection of the University of Antioquia (CIUA) emerged as a repository of specimens collected in various research projects done by the group of Ichthyology GIUA since 2002. Initially, became part of the collection of Limnology (CLUA) but in 2008 it was registered in the Alexander von Humboldt Institute Museums database. Since then, CIUA cures fish specimens not only from the ichthyologic research at the University of Antioquia but other investigations, monitoring of consulting firms that deliver the material collected in their work and donations from the community. Here, we made a report about information contained in CIUA Fish Museum.

Geographic Coverage

The CIUA Fish Museum is a regional museum covering mostly Colombian Andean region. Department of Antioquia is the most significant political division with 283 sampling localities, 2492 records and 12909 specimens. Most of the records in CIUA database come from marine and freshwater aquatic systems in the northwestern Colombia (Fig.1). Dataset is from the coastal line of the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, and seven river basins Magdalena-Cauca, Meta, San Juan de Urabá, Sinú and Atrato. Most of the records come from freshwater systems (96%); mainly from creeks (33%) and rivers (41.8 %) (Fig. 2).Altitudinally, specimens in CIUA were collected between 0 and 3486m.a.s.

Design Description Sampling desing had been planned in order to describe changes in the fish assemblage in two ways: spatial and time axis. Also to probe some hypothesis on fisheries landings and fish migrations.

Sampling Methods

Fish were caught using various methods; each of them defined according the habitat. In freshwater systems were used electrofishing, cast net throws (0,5-3 cm mesh size), gill nets (1-12 cm, mesh size), bottom trawls (0,5-3 cm, mesh size) and hooks lines (different sizes). In marine systems, we used mainly hook lines and gill nets. Although there was not a general sampling design, most of the samples in freshwater systems were taken in different climatic moments (rains and dry periods)

Study Extent Magdalena-Cauca River, Atrato River, Sinú River, San Juan de Urabá River, Rancheria River, Caribbean Sea, Pacific Ocean, Caqueta River and Orinoco River, .
Quality Control Species of each specimen was determined using specialized literature. All the scientific names of specimens were validated by the updated fish checklist in Catalog of Fishes-California Academy of Sciences (Eschemeyer and Fong, 2016). Most of the specimens are preserved in alcohol 96% and other ones are dry preservation (skeletons). A lot consists of all specimens of a species collected at the same climatic period and place. Each lot contains a paper tag with the main information about date and sampling site such as the Systematic information of the species; all of them are located inside metal cabinets protected from light. Because of the little space to store, lots are organized by a serial number. Data of each specimen (Species, Genera, Family, Order and Class), and date of sampling and collector name were recorded in a excel data set following recommendations of Darwin Core format and in the CIUA Museum Book. Some geographical information is also part of the data set associated to each lot. Some of those are: geographical records, locality name, and altitude. The latitude and longitude of sampling sites were plotted and cleaned using the menu facility of ModestR (García-Roselló et al., 2013) and Georreference protocol of Alexander von Humboldt Institute (Escobar D et al 2014) whit sofware Qgis.
