The Laboratory of Bentonic Invertebrates has directed its research toward the study of the communities of marine invertebrates and salt waters of the Mexican Pacific, at times extending to the fauna on the tropical east Pacific or the eastern Pacific. Studies have been made of species or groups of species in bentonic and pelagic environments, emphasizing the communities of crustacean decapods and stomatopods, as well as mollusks. It is also in charge of the Collection of Fishes from the Mexican Pacific.

The information currently contained in the database of this collection includes 1 235 records of samples pertaining to 69 families, 132 genera and 222 species of fish.
