In the present chapter, we review the current understanding of mucosal vaccines in aquaculture, and discuss the different commercially available and experimentally researched vaccines for fish. We present an overview of the different types of mucosal vaccines in aquaculture, comparing monovalent and polyvalent vaccines, killed vs. live vaccines, and novel vaccines utilizing recombinant subunit, vectored, and DNA technology. Finally, we highlight the different delivery methods of these vaccines and discuss their advantages and disadvantages.
