Abstract

• Eleginops maclovinus is living in proximity to salmonid culture centers feeding off of uneaten pellet and salmonid feces. • The aim of this study was to evaluate the innate and adaptive immune responses of E. maclovinus challenged with Francisella noatunensis. • The results suggest activation of the immune response in E. maclovinus injected by distinct Francisella noatunensis doses. • This is the first immunological study to relate an emergent pathogen in salmonids with a native fish.
