In general, commensal bacteria compete with pathogenic microbes for nutrients, binding sites on epithelial cells, and can modulate the immune system to benefit the host. Mucus is also vital to host protection and is produced at mucosal surfaces such as the gills and intestinal tract as well as the external surface of the skin. Mucus exists in a state of constant translocation, being physically removed from the skin and mucosal surfaces, hence trapping and removing pathogens and preventing their attachment to and invasion of host cells (reviewed in Ellis 2001).

Functional analyses have characterized lymphocytes from teleosts to exhibit potent cytotoxic activity to allogeneic and xenogeneic target cells (Fischer et al. 2003; Bernard et al. 2006a; Toda et al. 2009). Thus, it would appear that functionally teleost fish have the capability to induce immune non-responsiveness and tolerate food antigens and commensal organisms of benefit to the host whilst, at the same time, maintaining the capability to positively respond both to pathogens that reside within host cells and those that reside extracellularly.
