The Nordic zebrafish and husbandry meeting took place at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, November 7-9, 2018. More than 120 scientists from Europe joined this meeting, which also attracted world-leading keynote speakers such as Zoltan Varga, Didier Stainier, and Hernán Lopez-Schier. The meeting comprised both scientific as well as zebrafish husbandry and animal welfare sessions. This combination led to fruitful discussions, new collaborations as well as in the formation of a working group that will review and compile evidence-based husbandry guidelines for the local authorities. The success of this meeting emphasizes in general that smaller local conferences provide an excellent platform to establish local networks, to build up and share local infrastructures as well as to provide knowledge and help to peer researchers.
