A whole new fascination on the global role of microorganisms from all three domains of life, has been elucidated mostly as a result of the recent and ongoing technological revolution in the microbiology field. Microorganisms in aquaculture have attracted substantial attraction from both the scientific community and the industry, for several decades now. The primer target has primarily been pathogens of the reared species. However, microorganisms hold other crucial roles in the aquaculture like the beneficial impact of microbial activities to nutrition, growth, health of the reared organisms, but also biofouling, harmful blooms, aquaculture waste treatment, water quality monitoring, etc. The effect of such microbial features, render the aquaculture-associated microorganisms more important than just the pathogenic ones.
This special issue aims at collecting some of the latest research on any aspect of aquaculture-associated Bacteria/Archaea/unicellular Eukarya, spanning from biology to diversity, ecophysiology and pathogenicity of these microorganisms.
