    Biography
      Erik is the Manager of the Core Zebrafish Facility at Washington Universitys School of Medicine in Saint Louis, Missouri. He began culturing and caring for Zebrafish in 2006 as a technician at The Stowers Institute for Medical Research in Kansas City, MO. In 2008 he joined Washington University, and in 2010 he took on the role of Manager for the soon-to-be Core Zebrafish Facility. The Core has a 7000-tank capacity, features a dedicated nursery and two adult fish holding rooms, a fully automated feeding system and dedicated cage-wash facility. His focus over the recent years has centered on integrating practices from the Aquaculture field at large into the Laboratory Culture of Zebrafish, promulgating the use of rotifers as a first feed item, reducing the generation time of the fish, and making automated cagewash the standard practice in Zebrafish Facilities.

    Abstract:

    As the prevalence of the use of Zebrafish as an animal model continues its ballistic growth, the need for a better understanding of the factors that add up to success is needed. Topics covered will include: water quality, nutrition, embryo care and breeding techniques, larval rearing and environmental enrichment.
