Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine - Fish Facility

This new fish research facility was one of the first automated facilities in the country. Along with a state-of-the-art Brine Shrimp Growth Facility, the 7,000 fish tanks use automatic feeders to dispense consistent amounts of food. Lighting was designed for even, vertical distribution on all fish tanks to help mimic a natural circadian rhythm. To improve the overall longevity of the facility, durable non-corrosive materials were used in all applications of the project. The facility includes a small nursery for breeding and two larger rooms for adult fish. The fish rooms are supported by Microscope Rooms, a Mutagenesis Room, Reverse Osmosis Room, Environmental Room, and Case/Glass Wash Facility.
