Because of this, there is an increased interest in the immune responses of fish as models for higher vertebrates in immunotoxicological studies. Prior to such studies, baseline criteria for specific components of the immune(More)
The immune defence mechanisms of fish seem to be related and similarly competent to those of mammals. Because of this, there is an increased interest in the immune responses of fish as models for higher vertebrates in immunological/immunotoxicological studies. Macrophages (M phi), phagocytic cells of the mammalian and teleost immune system which reside in(More)
