Water quality is vital in zebrafish labs as it’s deeply interconnected to aquatic animal husbandry. Less than ideal water quality can affect the overall health and performance of zebrafish. As a research organism, zebrafish are invaluable to scientists and researchers with an important job to play, therefore their health should be a number one priority. Ensuring your fish remain in optimal health can translate into a an all-around, highly productive facility and smooth research operations. There are many aspects of water quality that can be refined (e.g., filtration – which then can break down into biological, chemical, and mechanical components). We’ll touch upon several topics that are worth dialing in and monitoring in your lab to help ensure your fish remain fit.
