The Aquarium

The increasingly popular role of Zebrafish in research has driven demand for a purpose-built facility at the University of Otago.

The 1130-tank facility uses state-of-the-art infrastructure manufactured by Italian company Tecniplast Aquatic Solutions. The facility incorporates four individual systems: A core of 1050 tanks made up of a CLS (Central Live Support) system and MLS (Multi-Linking) system; one quarantine system, totalling 50 tanks; and a toxicology unit of 30 tanks.
