The Zariquiey Collection is the collection of crustaceans donated by Dr. Ricardo Zariquiey Alvarez (1897-1965). Dr. Zariquiey Alvarez collaborated with the Fisheries Research Institute of Barcelona (origin of the current ICM), and donated his collection of crustaceans, and the associated library to the Institute. The Zariquiey collection is part of the CBR and is mainly composed by Decapod Crustaceans. more

Dr. Zariquiey Álvarez, like his father, Dr. Ricardo Zariquiey Cenarro (1870-1943), was a prominent pediatrician and carcinologist. His collection of crustaceans grew with their own personal contributions and with contributions from their international contacts. Dr. Zariquiey Alvarez founded the Group of Carcinologic Studies, with Dr. I. Gordon (British Museum), Dr. J. Monod and Dr. J. Forest (Museum of Natural History, Paris), and Dr. L.B. Holthuis (Museum of Leiden). The best known and studied reference of his works is "Crustáceos Decápodos Ibéricos", published posthumously in 1968. His meticulousness and precision can be seen in the careful conservation of his specimens. He made important taxonomic contributions, including new types. Of the currently catalogued specimens there are types of 5 species. The collection contains specimens mainly from the Western Mediterranean (86%; especially the Catalan Mediterranean) and NE Atlantic (7%; Gulf of Cadiz, Portugal, Galicia, Cantabrian Sea, Bay of Biscay, France, Scandinavia, the British Isles, North Sea). There are also important contributions from other areas of the Mediterranean (Italy) and Atlantic (Morocco, Canary Islands, Senegal, Gulf of Guinea, Angola, United States, Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina); and the Red Sea
