The various leucocytes, plasma cells and macrophages are described and illustrated. Eosinophils and basophils are lacking in Clarias gariepinus but present in Sarotherodon mossambicus. The leucocytes of C. gariepinus resemble those found in mammals, as do the plasma cells and macrophages of both species. A possible mechanism for their formation is postulated.
