Zebrafish have become a widely used model organism in developmental biology research. In order to initiate an experimental foundation for aging studies, we have determined some basic gerontological parameters for populations of outbred zebrafish, and the golden sparse strain. Outbred zebrafish manifested a mean life span of about 42 months, with the longest living individual surviving for 66 months. The golden sparse populations had a mean life span of 36 months and a maximum longevity of 58… CONTINUE READING
