The fish and wildlife pathology laboratory has been in operation since 1956. The laboratory investigates fish and wildlife die-offs, provides fish health inspection and diagnostic services to state and private fish hatcheries, and diagnostic services on fish and wildlife problems to commercial fishermen, minnow dealers, tropical fish dealers, University of Minnesota, Como and Minnesota zoos, and the fishing and hunting public. The laboratory also reviews all requests for fish importation into the state so they may meet current importation guidelines.
