The morphology of the cellular constituents of the blood of Salmo trutta was investigated. Blood cell counts and differential counts were included. Cellular elements of the blood were found to be nucleated erythrocytes, lymphocytes, neutrophils, monocytes and thrombocytes. Dried smears of blood which had been stained with Wright's stain indicated the erythrocytes were flat elliptical cells . However, the phase microscope revealed the biconcave shape of the mature erythrocyte, the concavity being interrupted by the central nucleus. Average cell rreasurements were 16.5 microns in length and 10.2 microns in width. [TRUNCATED]
