Aims and scope

Advances in Aquaculture and Fisheries Management is a peer-reviewed open access multidisciplinary journal which considers high quality articles for publication in all aspects of aquaculture and fisheries science. The journal is devoted to the advancement of technological innovations and solutions to major issues facing the growth of global aquaculture and fisheries science. Advances in Aquaculture and Fisheries Management is international in perspective and thus attracts research papers that advance scientific understanding in the various research topics important to aquaculture production. Papers are selected for publication based on scientific quality and the significance of the knowledge or ideas presented, guaranteeing readers the highest quality information available. The journal aims;

  • To publish and make available the highest quality international scientific contributions to aquaculture and fisheries science. The journal publishes disciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary aquaculture as well as non-traditional scientific areas such as sustainability science, social-ecological systems, ornamental, conservation and restoration related to aquaculture.
  • To publish papers on applied or scientific research relevant to freshwater, brackish, and marine aquaculture.
