A specialized laboratory has been built in Seattle, Washington, for obtaining information about fish behavior. The laboratory includes a concrete experimental tank, 60 feet long, 20 feet wide, and 5 feet deep, in which water can be recirculated at flows up to 40 cfs, and several smaller tanks for a variety of studies. Features of the laboratory include facilities for holding and acclimatizing fish, electronic control units for electrical studies, a heat-exchange system for temperature control in small tanks, means for controlling light conditions, and provisions for making chemical analyses.
