Fish here not only have their weight tracked, but havesamplesroutinely taken for microscopy to guarantee a clean specimen prior to becoming available. Upon arrival, specimens receive individual medication baths based on its species and diagnosis.

Specimens are transferred using disposable nitrile gloves, nets are avoided. Slime coats and scales are easily damaged with the use of nets.
