The appearance and proportions of morphologically distinct leucocytes (monocytes, thrombocytes, lymphocytes and diverse forms of granulocytes) encountered in the blood of four teleost species: coho salmon Oncorhynchus kisutch, Pacific herring Clupea pallasi, brook stickleback Culaea inconstans and fathead minnow Pimephales promelas, are presented, along with examples of how water quality influenced their relative proportions. The results clearly show that relative leucocyte number responds significantly and differently to changes in water quality. The value of using differential white cell counting as a quick and inexpensive component of assaying immune system alterations is discussed.
