The SARL supports two animal models for researchers. There is a large self-contained rainbow trout hatchery that is equipped to maintain and propagate Shasta strain rainbow trout, incubate and hatch artificially spawned eggs, and rear fry to varying experimental endpoints. The zebrafish area is equipped to rear up to 10,000 experimental zebrafish in addition to brood stock. The core facility serves a number of Center investigators by providing essential services. For example, investigators are provided study design assistance, research animals, tank space, complete fish husbandry services, standard and custom diets, and experimental data collection assistance.
