This paper examines several immuno-biochemical indices of the liver and blood serum of the Mediterranean horse mackerel Trachurus mediterraneus ponticus (Aleev, 1956) and the round goby Neogobius melanostomus (Pallas, 1814) that live in the coastal waters of the Black Sea in locations with different anthropogenic loads. The antimicrobial properties of blood serum, the lipid fraction composition and antioxidant activity of the fish tissues were investigated. Fish from the polluted location displayed weak humoral immunity, low antioxidant activity of tissues, and low triglyceride content, compared to individuals from relatively clean habitats. At the same time, the contents of total lipids, cholesterol, nonesterified fatty acids, and malonic dialdehyde in fish were higher in the polluted than in the relatively low-polluted location.
