The difference in skin allograft survival among heterozygous and homozygous gynogenetic carp (Cyprlnus carpio) lines is supporting the idea that at least one major and several minor histocompatibility loci exist in fish. Moreover, differences in susceptibility to Aeromonas salmonicida infection among conventional and gynogenetic sibling groups were observed. It is suggested that multiple genes are involved in disease resistance of fish.
