The LKCNHM has recently been designated as a depository for specimens of fish parasites by the Asian Fisheries Society. There are presently about 135 slides of fish parasites at the RMBR including eight holotypes and at least 18 slides of paratype material. Many of these specimens were contributed by J. Richard Arthur, Susan Lim, S. Chinabut and Leong Tak Seng.
