10-Experimental animals

There are three broad areas which need to be considered when planning animal studies:

  1. The suitability of the species or strain as a model of the target organism.
  2. Characterisation of the animals.
  3. The ethical issues surrounding their use (discussed under topic 3)

General principles
For fish researchers

Steps should be taken to avoid surplus animals, such as those in breeding programmes which prove to be too old, those which respond poorly to treatment (for example by showing a weak immune response) or which are otherwise unsuitable for re-use, re-homing or release.
