Fig. 17. Histological observations of melano-macrophage in the kidney of hatchery-reared and wild masu salmon. Panels 'a' and 'b' designate kidneys from hatchery-reared and wild fish respectively, at the start of the experiment (day 0). Panels 'c' and 'd' show kidneys from the starved groups of hatchery-reared and wild fish respectively, 45 days after the start of the experiment. Panels 'e' and 'f' reveal kidneys from the fed groups of hatchery-reared and wild fish, respectively, and panel 'g' shows a kidney from the hatchery-reared fish sampled from the river. Panels e, f and g were shot 45 days after the start of the experiment. The arrowheads indicate melano-macrophages. Scale bars show 50.0 μm.
