Observations

Outbred zebrafish have a mean lifespan of 3.5 years and can live up to 5.5 years. They exhibit a gradual ageing process. A spinal curvature was reported to be a common age-related phenotype [0003]. The zebrafish heart appears to have a robust capacity for regeneration based on the proliferation of cardiomyocytes which can avoid scar formation and allow cardiac regeneration [0482].
