Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is the most frequently used laboratory fish mo- dell. The complete genom of this species has been published and the species has been domesticated for artificial conditions (recirculation system, pelleted food, small tanks) giving trusty results in laboratory tests. But in the case when there are sick specimens in the population, even with control groups the fish are not good enough for experiments. The most frequent diseases (roe retention, fatty liver degeneration, scurvy, fish tuberculosis, saprolegniosis, protozoan and metazoan parasitoses) need permanent veterinary control in the technology of such intensive facilities.
