Abstract

This paper outlines the methods adopted for creating a fish osteological reference collection for tropical Australasia. This collection currently contains bones from 52 fish representing 35 different species found in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Australia. This developing collection has become a valuable resource for zooarchaeological analyses in the Queensland, Torres Strait and Papua New Guinea tropical coastal zone. Ongoing development of the collection to include specimens from a wider geographic area will further support fish bone research across the region.
