      Christian Lawrence is currently the Aquatic Resources Program (ARP) Manager at Boston Childrens Hospital (BCH). ARP administers the zebrafish program at BCH, which is one of the largest and most active of its kind in the world. Mr. Lawrence also serves as a faculty member for the Health and Colony Management of Laboratory Fish course at the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory, and was a Fulbright Specialist at the Bar-Ilan University Faculty of Medicine in Safed, Israel in 2013. He is co-author of The Laboratory Zebrafish, and has written a number of scientific publications on zebrafish biology and culture.

    Abstract

    The ability to breed zebrafish in the laboratory goes a long way in determining the success or failure a research program. The complexity of zebrafish reproductive behavior and spawning is often vastly underestimated. This presentation will provide attendees with an in-depth look at current understanding of zebrafish reproduction, as well as a comprehensive overview of some of the most critical factors impacting the breeding performance of this important laboratory animal. This information will help technicians, managers, researchers, and veterinarians to both troubleshoot existing breeding problems and build successful zebrafish breeding programs at their own institutions over the long-term.
