Mice and rats make up about 95% of the nonhuman animals accommodated in biomedical research facilities, but zebrafish have become the fastest growing segment of the research population in recent years. Similar to other research species, fish need to be healthy, physiologically normal, and disease free so that research results are dependable. In order to protect the status of zebrafish research colonies, it is essential to have a quarantine program for introducing new animals into established facilities. We will discuss the important parameters for establishing an effective zebrafish quarantine program, the more common types of quarantine programs used in biomedical research facilities today, and how you can use these methods to insure the pathogen and genetic status of your fish colonies.
