Abstract

The lymphatic circulation consists of blind-end capillaries whose function is to return fluid and protein that have filtered out of true capillaries back to the circulation. Most studies to date suggest that fish lack a true lymphatic system and instead have a secondary circulation. Secondary vessels may have functions similar to lymphatics, but they are formed directly from the arterial circulation and develop into a second capillary network in parallel with the original primary circulation. The secondary system is most prominent in tissues that line the body surfaces such as the skin, fins, and the peritoneum.
