The ontogenetic development of the res in the rainbow trout salmo gairdneri






Journal of Fish Diseases 8(1): 35-42

The ontogenetic development of the res in the rainbow trout salmo gairdneri

The phagocytosis of colloidal carbon in the adults and fry of S. gairdneri Richardson was investigated. Adult fish accumulated trapped carbon in the spleen, kidney and heart. Fry, as early as 4 days post-hatch, had an efficient phagocytic system, the carbon being engulfed by free macrophages which accumulated in the connective tissue, under the skin, in the gut and in the gills. By 18 days post-hatch the situation was similar to that found in the adult. The trapping of carbon in the gills of young fry is discussed, and it is suggested that it acts as a special mechanism to protect the thymus from undesirable and possible tolerigizing antigen exposure, before immunocompetence is attained.

Four factors liable to affect the within and between-population variability of the number of pyloric ceca in rainbow trout (S. gairdneri) were studied. After 6 mo., no variation due to age was observed even after transferring the fish from 1 fish...

The parent-progeny correlation for number of caeca was 0.92, and the pooled estimate of h2 of the trait from 2 experiments was 0.53 plus or minus 0.07.
