Topics covered are crucial to modern and sustainable aquaculture.   All fish have an immune system to fight diseases, although the system is by no means as advanced as the ones found in mammals. The system breaks down into two main parts: protection from physical invasion and internal pathogen handling.. Physical protection comes in the form of scales and the layers of dermis and provide defense against physical injury and disease . Publisher Summary.
