Rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri), channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas), and bluegills (Lepomis macrochirus) are cultured widely for toxicological research. However, vacillant or extreme cultural conditions are sometimes suspected of compromising the test animals and, thus, results of comparative or confirmatory research. Because exact optimum conditions for indoor maintenance and cultural of the four species are not well defined, standarized practices have been adopted that are intended to reduce cultural conditions to a common variable status. Water quality, nutrition, genetic variation, diseases, fish handling, gross behaior, and required facilities are discussed. Well known propagation techniques provide the basis for the intensive care methods used. Special emphasis is given to diets, diet preparation, and residues of pesticides or other contaminants in diets and fish.
