Abstract

Melanomacrophage centers in the liver of fish are an important marker of health status of individuals and as such can be used as bioindicators of stress and the effects of various exogenous substances on fish. Because of the relatively simple morphology of liver tissue, which facilitates the observation of different types of degenerative changes in it, it is a popular topics of research in histopathology. However, although the procedures for the quantitative and qualitative analysis, is both well known and standardized, the researchers through the last two decades, became more aware of the significance of the sampling step and knowledge about the biology and ecology of the species studied. This is because many natural factors significantly affects the abundance of melanomacrophage centers in the liver of fish. In this review, a brief overview to the structure and origin of melanomacrophage centers is presented, as well as the possible causes of their origin and methodology that is commonly used to explore them.
