The following represents an email discussion in September 2005 on the topic of fish model systems for the study of evolution. The participants included scientists working on a range of fish model systems, including cavefish, Danios, sticklebacks, cichlids, and trout. Editing has been kept to a minimum, to maintain the character of the on-line discussion.
