Understandably, in the early years of the growth of the zebrafish model, husbandry parameters varied widely from laboratory to laboratory. But with the explosion in the number of investigators opting to utilize zebrafish in their research, the standardization of husbandry parameters is not only practical but also absolutely critical to ensure the reliability and reproducibility of experimental results. For more than 13 years, technicians, veterinarians, laboratory managers, regulatory officers, and investigators have joined together for an annual workshop on zebrafish husbandry. The meeting is held in conjunction with the World Aquaculture Society's annual conference, a congeries of fish experts and aquatic species enthusiasts. From a lineup of five speakers and perhaps 25 attendees, the workshop has grown to a one and a half day event with more than 20 speakers and ∼90 attendees.
