N1 - Funding Information: From the first Aquatic Models Conference to the edition to which this issue is dedicated, biological and database resources supporting aquatic animal research have commanded considerable attention ( Nairn et al., 2001; Schmale, 2004; Schmale et al., 2007 ). A few aquatic models, such as zebrafish, have become commonplace at many university and government laboratories such that well established protocols and shared facilities are available. However, the vast majority of scientists working with marine or freshwater animals represent small scientific communities. Such researchers find it necessary to personally collect, rear, and care for the animals used in their studies. Separation of labor for animal care and maintenance from that needed for the more technical tasks of experimentation is rare. Standardized protocols in animal care, such as those available for mouse or primate facilities at typical medical schools, are only now being established in aquatic animal science. This is not to say that varied, valuable and important aquatic resource centers do not exist. Examples of national stock centers for aquatic organisms include the National Resource for Zebrafish, the Xiphorophorous Genetic Stock Center, the National Resource Center for Cephalopods and the National Resource for Aplysia. These Centers, funded by the National Center for Research Resources of NIH, provide needed standardization of aquatic animals and other resources for use by scientists employing these particular aquatic models. Funding Information: Lastly, we wish to acknowledge those who supported this conference that was hosted by Duke University and the Nicholas School of the Environment. The meeting would not have been possible without the generous support of the National Center for Research Resources, the Office of the Dean of the Nicholas School, the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, the Duke University Comprehensive Cancer Center, Fred and Alice Stanback through their support for the Cancer and the Environment Program at Duke University, the Roy F. and Joann Cole Mitte Foundation, and the Duke University Integrated Toxicology and Environmental Health Graduate Training Program. We would especially like to thank the members of the organizing committee who, in addition to the authors of this preface were: Marjorie Oleksiak (University of Miami) and David E. Williams (Oregon State University).
