Dear Megha,
you can do a fin clip on anesthetized fish and a DNA extraction by simple boiling method and do a PCR for the transgene.

Subject: [Zbrafish] sorting out transgenic fish

Hi all !
we got a batch of fish from a different lab. The batch has a mixed
group of fish, transgenic and WT. I am trying to determine which fish
are transgenic and which are not. We are currently trying to breed
them to check for transgene but could anyone suggest a molecular
method to determine which fish are transgenic?
