Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on Marine, Transitional, and Brackish Environments. It aims to collect papers and studies concerning the chemical–physical and biological quality of the waters of these environments, especially those poorly studied, also but not only linked to pollution and the constant and impressive presence of plastics, microplastics, and other new polluting materials (e.g., masks, gloves) which have increased significantly in this last period (marine litter). Knowing the quality of water in transition and coastal areas is also a useful and highly supportive tool for the production of plant or animal organisms, to support fishing, especially in a period of overfishing and overexploitation of natural resources.
