Photos: Mutant zebrafish at Oregon’s Zebrafish International Resource Center



I had the pleasure of exploring Oregon’s Zebrafish International Resource Center this afternoon. It houses mutant strains of zebra fish, and breeds and distributes them to researchers worldwide. The room is maintained at a humid 83.3 degrees Fahrenheit, optimal breeding conditions for the fish.
