The Washington State University facility, the part of the core which is funded by the CRB, includes a number of recirculating systems which can accommodate small-scale laboratory experiments. This facility is also involved in propagating several clonal rainbow trout lines for research purposes. This part of the core is staffed by Paul Wheeler with oversight provided by Gary Thorgaard. The second and third components are at the University of Idaho. The second component consists of a recirculating facility on the Moscow campus which is primarily used for short-term rearing of experimental fishes by U of I researchers.
