Zebrafish give up their DNA in pretty much the same way as other
organisms, so you can just follow a protocol out of a lab manual like
Sambrook et al. on whole frozen adults. You can find a variety of
protocols used on zebrafish in the  Zebrafish Book lab manual (M.
Westerfield, 1993, University of Oregon). You can gain access to an
on-line copy of this through Mosaic by opening a URL to If this doesn't work for you, drop me an email
(with any luck my address is pasted on the end here) and I'll send you
protocols the old-fashioned way.
