Zebrafish is already one of the most used model organisms in biomedical sciences and other research fields. It is therefore becoming increasingly important to assure that zebrafish maintained in laboratory aquaculture conditions are raised and housed under rigorous standards that promote health and welfare to guarantee the required quality and reproducibility of research data. Specifying the programs each facility is adopting would be the first step to achieve this by allowing other facilities to compare, improve, and discuss their protocols and fish performance. We provide in this article a detailed description of an integrated facility health management program, with protocols and readouts, fully designed and aimed at maximizing fish health, welfare, and performance for research.
