    Abstract

    Fish cell lines have an important role in the expanding aquaculture industry of the world. The main impetus for the development of many of the continuous fish cell lines was to provide the means for isolating and identifying viruses that are the causative agents of epizootics of commercially important species. Cell lines are indispensable for development of precise diagnostics and prophylactics of the viral pathogens. Besides diagnosis, cell lines are important in the much required national and international quarantine and certification programme for producing virus free fish stock. Fish cell lines have also found widespread application in cytogenetics, transgenics, toxicology, as in vitro models for studying cellular physiological processes and also in comparative immunology.
