Abstract

This chapter describes the immune responses that are elicited by vaccination of fish and that are key to providing protection against future encounter with these same pathogens. The cells and molecules involved are outlined, and the different functions they have within the immune system are detailed. The potential to use these responses as markers of protection is discussed and areas for future study are suggested.
