    In our study skeletal elements from fish species of the Antarctic waters were extracted by bioenzyme and compared with the aim to provide a computer supported identification system, including a database of bone pictures and in the near future various identification keys as well, completed by a simple tool to compare the same skeletal elements of different species. In the database most of the skeletal elements of the cranial and axial skeleton (apart from a few bones of the neurocranium) are represented by pictures, otoliths and vertebrae included. Furthermore cooperation with other institutions is needed to extend the existing work.
