A major barrier to providing an invaluable tool to the environmental sciences is the lack of any defined regional or national repository for tissues and data from fish and invertebrates affected by environmental contamination. This paper discusses the benefits of such a program, the establishment of a data base, the formation of a conference system patterned after human and veterinary sciences, methods of coding diseases, and the potential use of such a system by local, state, and federal agencies.
