The paper describes the mechanical apparatus and biological techniques now in use to culture fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) at the US Environmental Protection Agency's Environmental Research Laboratory in Duluth, Minnesota. Physical system information includes water supply, construction materials, water temperature, photoperiod, and the water delivery system. The biological section addresses the selection of spawning fish, incubation of embryos, larval and adult feeding, disease, and gene pool considerations. The document is meant to be a guide for those interested in culturing fathead minnows for use in fish toxicology research.
