Special Issue Information
Mollusks are the second most diverse group in the animal kingdom and include many economic aquatic species. To better develop and utilize such consumed mollusks, it is important to focus on their germ plasm resources, which involves the exploration of genetic diversity. The conservation of genetic diversity is an essential prerequisite for developing new breeds with desirable traits. Meanwhile, mollusks have a high yield in the aquatic industry, providing low-fat and protein-rich seafood for humans. The culture of economic mollusks, including bivalves, gastropods and cephalopods, is a globally important industry. In general, mollusk farming techniques include elevated culture on racks, trestles and other structures.
I am pleased to invite you to contribute to the Special Issue “Mollusk Genetic Diversity and Breeding Technology”, which will be published in the journal Fishes. We welcome the submission of original research articles, reviews, mini-reviews, and perspective articles on topics including (but not limited to) the following:
- Population genetics analysis of mollusks derived from mitochondrial DNA and nuclear markers;
- Evaluation of the genetic resources of mollusks;
- Farming techniques and farming patterns of mollusks;
- Physiological and biochemical responses of mollusks to environmental stress.

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 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.
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.
