RESAMA

Réseau d’étude Sanitaire des Animaux Modèles Aquatiques (Network for studying Aquatic Animals Models).

The RESAMA Network

RESAMA is a network dedicated to the zootechnical and health management of research facilities hosting non mammalian aquatic species. The network gathers about forty facilities, mainly French. The species most frequently encountered are the zebrafish (Danio rerio) and the xenopus (Xenopuslaevis).
However, RESAMA is interested in any aquatic species hosted by its partners, currently several fish and amphibian species such as the medaka (Oryzias latipes), the Mexican tetra (Astyanax mexicanus), the stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus), the tropical xenopus (X. tropicalis), …

RESAMA proposes to its partners a health visit coupled to a detailed zootechnical analysis of their aquatic breeding practises. The visit is carried out by specialist veterinary surgeons and zootechnicians. It aims to develop a set of zootechnical practices, and to estimate the prevalence of fish and amphibian pathologies and infections. The veterinary analysis includes the external examination of the animal and its autopsy in search for parasite. Some specimens are submitted to histological and/or bacteriological analysis. When necessary, individual pathogen species are characterised by PCR amplification and genome sequencing.

The first health visit is free of charge for French facilities and is supported by the network (PIA TEFOR 2012-2019). The program allow to support further visits but a financial participation of the partners is then required. RESAMA guarantees to its partners the confidentiality of the health monitoring it realises.
In exchange to the support they receive, the facilities grant the right to publish any result arising from the visit after anonymization. The ultimate objective is indeed to help the research community to improve health management and husbandry of fishes and amphibians.

RESAMA provide generic informations on amphibian and fish health management on its website (www.resama.eu) as well as dedicated services restricted to its partners.

The network currently regroups nearly 40 French research facilities and a few European partners. The aim for the network is today to reinforce its partner basis both at the national and international level. Meanwhile, RESAMA will continue to pursue the diffusion of information about harmonised husbandry practises and health surveillance.
