Teleost fish are the oldest living vertebrates displaying a morphological and functional immune system conserved until
mammals, thus representing a useful model for evolutionary studies. Teleosts are increasingly employed as experimental
animal species for studies on physiological activities of vertebrates, and are widely used in the aquaculture industry. Due to
its importance as high-quality food, the sea bass is, at present, one of the most important farmed species in the
Mediterranean sea and many studies reported on the morphological and functional organisation of immune defences with
the aim of controlling its health in farming conditions. From these studies, a panel of genes coding for the main
immunomodulatory peptides of innate and acquired defences is available and constituted, at present, by genes coding for
innate defences, for acquired defences, and for other immune-related activities. In this review all these genes are collected
and defined as the sea bass ‘‘immunome’’, that is analysed in an evolutionary context.
