Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Marine ecology is the science that studies marine organisms and their relationships with the marine environment. It is a branch of ecology and a major component of marine biology. Among them, fish science is an important research direction. This Special Issue mainly aims to study the reproduction, growth, distribution, and quantitative changes in marine fishes in the marine environment; we also wish to focus on the interaction between organisms and the environment, elucidate the rules of biological oceanography, and provide information on the development, utilization, management, cultivation, and conservation of marine biological resources. Scholars in the field are welcome to share their relevant research in our Special Issue.

Specifically, this Special Issue, titled "New Insights into Marine Ecology and Fisheries Science", includes, but is not limited to, the following research directions:

  • Marine fish culture;
  • Eco-physiology of marine fishes;
  • Aquaculture environmental interactions;
  • Biodiversity of coastal marine fishes;
  • Marine environments and ecosystems;
  • Marine organisms and their relationships with the marine environment;
  • Biodiversity, conservation, and management strategies for sharks, skates, and rays;
  • Physiology, anatomy, and emerging diseases in elasmobranchs.
