The use of aquatic species is increasing in a range of scientific fields, including biomedical research, evolutionary biology, and environmental research. In December, PRIM&R hosted the webinar Research with Aquatic Species: New Strategies for Health and Welfare to address common concerns and emerging issues for researchers and animal care and use personnel involved in research with fish. Presenter Victoria Braithwaite, DPhil, professor of fisheries and biology and the co-director of the Center for Brain, Behavior and Cognition at Penn State University, addressed considerations related to social housing and environmental enrichment as well as the minimization of pain and distress through innovative methods of administering analgesia, anesthesia, and euthanasia.
