Abstract

The health status of farmed fish is central to the efficient production for harvest, as infection, either acute or chronic, will have serious effects on survival, growth, and quality of the final product. A correctly functioning immune system is vital to efficient aquaculture for both defense against invading pathogens and response to vaccines. The increase in sequence data for salmonid fish has allowed the development of tools to examine the immune response at both the transcriptional and the cellular level. This review will focus on identification of novel fish immune-related mRNA species by suppression subtractive hybridization, the expression pattern of mRNAs by transcriptome analysis (microarray), and the use of salmonid cell lines to examine the functional aspects of some key fish immune genes.
