Summary Cytochemistry has proven effective in differentiating specific cell lineages and elucidating their functional properties. This study utilised a range of cytochemical techniques to further investigate the leucocyte populations from Murray cod, an iconic Australian teleost fish species. This analysis provided clear insight into the structure and function of the leucocytes from this fish, which were found to be broadly similar to those of other fish species. However, some important differences were identified in Murray cod, such as the presence of naphthol AS chloroacetate esterase activity in the heterophil population, positive staining for periodic acid Schiff's, alkaline phosphatase and Sudan black B in the lymphocyte population, and a prevalent population of myeloid precursor cells.
