Abstract [en]

This chapter reviews recent advances in our knowledge of crustacean immunity. Emphasis is given to shrimp due to their importance in aquaculture and trade and to freshwater crayfish since they serve as model organisms for research in crustacean immunology. Crustaceans lack antibodies, interferon and some other components from the mammalian immune arsenal but can still mount an efficient defence against many potential pathogens. Crustacean innate immunity relies on a combination of efficient hemocyte and humoral reactions carried out by plasma proteins.
