Anatomy and Physiology of Casper Fish™ Basic Kit


Grades 5–12. For 30 students working in small groups. Now your class can observe the physiological changes of a living organism's internal anatomy—without having to dissect it! Introduce middle school and high school students to the exciting Casper Fish™—a laboratory-reared transparent zebra fish.

Using easy-to-follow protocols, students examine the physiological effects of temperature on these live fish and directly observe real-time changes on the internal organs, including heart rate, respiration, movement, and more. Normal-type zebra fish are also included so the class can make comparisons between the 2 strains. Kit requires use of an already established aquarium (not included).

Note: Kit should not be shipped over a weekend. Carolina recommends that you request your order to arrive on a Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday (or even a Saturday) to avoid weekend shipping. Contact Carolina Customer Service for more delivery options.
