Feejee/Fiji Mermaid
By any name, it’s ugly.

Welcome to the SBU Archives’ blog.  We’ll post here from time to time as items of interest pop up.  The Monkey-fish caught my eye since we have one of its cousins here at SBU.  The question is whether or not ours actually came from the P.T. Barnum collection.  The paper trail is fuzzy but it does lead in that direction.  One of the unsolvable mysteries in our history.
