Welcome to the UCL fish facility

Here you can find The British Zebrafish Community Line Database.

The UCL fish facility is currently comprised of four separate multi-rack systems and several stand-alone and bench top systems housed in five separate rooms. Between the systems we have a total of about 5,000 tanks - each between 1.5 litres and 10 litres. All the multi-rack systems are re-circulating systems that are fully quarantined (all lines have been established from bleached eggs).

The UCL Fish Facility was established in 1998 and if you would like to see the citation metrics for nearly all of the zebrafish papers from UCL researchers since then, you will find them here.

If you are a UCL group using, or considering using, zebrafish then please come and talk to us about your plans. We have no core funding for the facility and so it is crucial that all planned fish use is properly costed on your grant applications.

For any enquiries please contact the facility manager, Carole Wilson.
