The haemopoietic organs of the catfish, Clarias gariepinus, and the Mozambique bream, Sarotherodon mossambicus, were studied. In both species the primary haemopoietic organs are the pronephros, the mesonephros and the spleen. The peritoneum and, particularly in catfish, the momentum are of secondary importance in haemopoiesis.
