Our Species

In our fish facility you can study two model fish species (zebrafish and the Japanese medaka), as well as aquaculture species, such as Atlantic salmon and trout.

Zebrafish - Danio rerio


Danio rerio

Most famous and used laboratory fish species in the world, zebrafish is a perfect model for advanced scientific research on vertebrate development and biology.


Oryzias latipes

The Japanese medaka is the second most-used fish model in the world, with the advantage of being tolerant to saline water and possessing a genotypic sex determination system.


Salmo salar

The Atlantic salmon is an iconic species in aquaculture; however, it is endangered in the wild. Salmon undergoes a complex life cycle, residing in rivers for part of its life and in the ocean for the other part.


Oncorhynchus mykiss

Rainbow trout is probably the most widely introduced fish species in the world, popular in recreational fishing and widely used in aquaculture.
