More about this event

This presentation will cover the mucus that aquatic animals, especially fish, produce on the surface of their skin in order to protect themselves both immunologically and physiologically from a number of things, including a wide variety of non-specific and specific immune substances that play an important role in protecting the animals from external invaders.
Learning Objectives -
Participants will understand:
1. Evaluation of non-specific immune components from the skin mucus of olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus); and,
2. Combination treatment used against scuticociliatosis that reduces the inhibitor effect of mucus in olive flounder.
