Special Issue "Aquatic Animal Health in Vulnerable Environments"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 March 2022.
Interests: aquaculture biotechnology; aquatic bacterial pathogens; development of rapid diagnostic methods for bacterial diseases of fish and invertebrates; biological markers for assessment of ecosystem disbalance; fish and shellfish tissue biochemistry
I am pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue on “Aquatic Animal Health in Vulnerable Environments” in the Applied Sciences journal. Aquatic animals, whether marine or freshwater, whether farmed or wild, face a number of threats related to their water environment. The technological pressures, occurrence of contaminants, and climate changes are ubiquitous in the environment and cause undesirable ecological effects reflecting on aquatic organisms. Thus, the aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest advances in identifying and resolving challenges related to aquatic animal health in aquacultured and free-living species.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: aquatic animal health, aquaculture, fishery management, fish community composition, genetics, environmental interactions, effects of pollutants on aquatic organisms, statistical approaches for predicting biological responses, and fish welfare.
Although the deadline for submission of manuscripts to this Special Issue is 10 March 2022, I would appreciate hearing from you in the next few weeks as to whether you would like to contribute.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
Dr. Natalija Topić Popović
