Adding to collections


Apr 15, 2008
Due to a wierd twist of fate I've been offered fresh (well a fresh as you can get from fishermen) samples of squid, octopus and cuttles and beaks via a contact of mine. I haven't checked out what sort of quality or diversity I would be getting but I however have a slight problem, I'm currently not affiliated with any university or business that could cater for storing specimens and despite me loving the idea of storing them at home the smell of alcohol and formalin might drive me mad. :bonk:

So I was wondering if there is anyone out there that may know of any places perferably in the south of england that might want or need cephalopod specimens. If not I might have to limit myself to just doing photographs and measurements for now for my own education and enjoyment.:roflmao:
