The freshwater fish, Danio rerio (zebrafish), have become widely used as a model organism for vertebrate development, DNA mutation, and human disease studies . Maintaining live colonies of the numerous developed strains of zebrafish under investigation can be prohibitively costly. As such, there is a growing need to catalog their reproductive cells and have them available on demand . Thus cryopreservation of model strain gametes has become an important endeavor, where evaluation of freezing and thawing techniques is currently a bottleneck to these procedures.
