The efferent branchial arteries join, dorsal to the pharynx, to form the dorsal aorta, the precise pattern varying in different species. From the first efferent branchial some blood flows through the pseudobranch and thence to the eyes and cranium. Also in this region, arteries branch ventral to the pharynx to supply the hyoidean and coronary systems. 5 kPa) and in the dorsal aorta 25 mmHg (3 kPa). This is reflected in the structure of the arteries in that the efferent vessels have thinner walls with a smaller amount of elastic tissue and muscle.

Lymph nodes do not occur in fish, and the liver, whose Kuppfer cells provide the largest area of phagocytic tissue in mammals, is virtually inert with regard to phagocytosis in the teleost (Ferguson 1975a). Giant cells and epithelioid cells, which are found in teleost chronic inflammatory lesions, are also considered part of the RES, or more properly the ‘mononuclear macrophage system’ (Van Furth 1970), since they are formed from fusion of individual macrophages in the presence of certain undegradable irritants (Timur 1975).

Two main types, differing in surface sculpture, are described. Ctenoid scales bear stiff spicular processes on bm f f their posterior external edge which are absent from cycloid scales. Both types have growth rings on their surface, which, in many species, allow determination of the individual’s age. Ultrastructurally, scales consist of collagen fibres interspersed with a matrix of albuminoid materials in which are deposited hydroxyapatite crystals. HYPODERMIS The hypodermis is a looser, adipose tissue, which is more vascular than the overlying stratum compactum of the dermis and is a frequent site of development of infectious processes.
