Phagocytic activities of splenic macrophages in Asian Sea Bass
(Lates calcarifer Bloch, 1790)

Phagocytic process after intraperitoneal injection of colloidal carbon in four different doses to Asian sea bass (Lates
calcarifer Bloch, 1790) has been documented. The fish spleen was found to play a central role in the fish immune system
against invading foreign substances as thin sections of spleen melanomacrophage centre showed the carbon particle
accumulation.
