Special Issue Information
In recent decades, the aquaculture production for human consumption has increased rapidly. However, disease problems have become a major potential threat to the sustainable development of aquaculture. Regarding the ban on the use of antibiotics as prophylactic agents or growth promoters has become an international consensus; thus, alternative strategies for biocontrol in aquaculture need to be urgently developed. Recently, great efforts have been made in the study of probiotics and prebiotics in fish and shellfish production. This Special Issue welcomes contributions on the topics involving probiotics, prebiotics, and synbiotics in nutrition metabolism, immunomodulation, disease resistance, and gut microbiota in fish. The eminent research in these fields should hopefully contribute to the progression of aquaculture towards sustainable development. Therefore, I am pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue of the journal Fishes, entitled “Probiotics and Prebiotics in Fish Nutrition and Immunity”.
