Abstract

This chapter provides a general overview of the defence mechanisms in fish.
Most data are derived from bony fish, but some interesting differences with cartilaginous or jawless fish will be discussed. It is known from fossil remains that the earliest fish appeared some 350–400 million years ago. This implies that unique specializations in the defence systems of certain fish species may have developed over the years
