The zebrafish community has been steadily growing in the last 20 years in Europe. Given the federal structure of Europe, this increase in zebrafish research generated a need for a strategic forum to identify and discuss exciting new areas of research and funding opportunities as well as to address infrastructural and legal issues of experimentation, transport, and husbandry of zebrafish. To foster this exchange, the European Union (EU)-funded network EuFishBioMed (Cost Action BM0804) organized an international scientific meeting of zebrafish principal investigators in Padova, Italy, in March this year. More than 120 researchers from all over the globe presented their latest work in talks and posters. A number of workshops addressed future directions of research and infrastructural issues.
