Usui, Takuji; Noble, Daniel W. A.; O'Dea, Rose E.; Fangmeier, Melissa L.; Lagisz, M.; Hesselson, Daniel; Nakagawa, Shinichi


Zebrafish are increasingly used as a vertebrate model organism for various traits including swimming performance, obesity and metabolism, necessitating high-throughput protocols to generate standardized phenotypic information. Here, we propose a novel and cost-effective method for exercising zebrafish, using a coffee plunger and magnetic stirrer. To demonstrate the use of this method, we conducted a pilot experiment to show that this simple system provides repeatable estimates of maximal swim...[Show more]
