Crustacean aquaculture is one of the most profitable activities worldwide. However, an important challenge continues to be the feeding and nutrition of these organisms in captivity, due to the high costs of the ingredients used to formulate feed. The fundamental basis for a correct understanding of the biology of crustaceans, whether in culture or in their natural state, is focused on the detailed study of their physiology and, therefore, their metabolism, in order to achieve optimal development for the biological capacities of organisms. It is crucial to develop research in these areas, not only to create more efficient nutrition and cultivation techniques, but also to establish sustainable management plans that protect natural populations.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to increase knowledge on crustacean nutrition, physiology and metabolism through the dissemination of relevant and updated information. We seek to promote progress in this line of research, favoring more responsible practices that are respectful to the environment, with the aim of improving cultivation and guaranteeing sustainable management.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Fishes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
