Marine Parasites and Exposure to Public Health

Like humans and alternative animals, fish suffer from diseases and parasites. Fish defences against illness square measure specific and non-specific. Non-specific defences embrace skin and scales, additionally because the secretion layer secreted by the cuticle that traps microorganisms and inhibits their growth. If pathogens breach these defences, fish will develop inflammatory responses that increase the flow of blood to infected areas and deliver white blood cells that plan to destroy the pathogens.

Specific defence’s square measure specialised responses to explicit pathogens recognised by the fish's body that's adaptive immune responses. In recent years, vaccines became wide employed in cultivation and decorative fish, as example vaccines for disease of the skin in farmed salmon and koi herpes in koi.
