Special Issue "Mineral Nutrition and Metabolism in Fish"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 August 2021).
Interests: mineral requirement and welfare in farmed fish; optimizing mineral levels in novel feeds; mineral sources, bioavailability and environmental impact; functional role of minerals during specific life stages or challenges
Interests: biochemical pathways; energy metabolism; adaptation physiology; animal feeding; animal nutrition and feeding; animal welfare; fish; digestion; aquaculture, polysaccharides; stress; stress physiology; aquaculture and fisheries; feed-fish-system relations
Mineral nutrition has been and is still a challenging area within fish nutrition research. We are in the middle of an era where interest in mineral research on fish is on the rise. Sound research backed by the rapid dissemination of new knowledge is essential to retain and expand this interest. This Special Issue aims to put together high-quality original research and review papers in fish mineral nutrition and metabolism (both finfish and shellfish). The topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to mineral requirement, novel ingredients and antinutrients, dietary mineral sources and availability; and functional role of minerals in improving fish health, stress response, broodstock performance, and welfare in aquaculture. Fundamental or mechanistic studies on mineral absorption, transport, or metabolism at whole animal, tissue or cellular level, including in vitro models, are welcomed. Communications linking minerals to fish rearing systems, effluents, and their environmental impact will also be considered for this special issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Animals is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
