"Journal of Aquaculture is a Top journal of OMICS Group, that deals with Aquaculture Research. It publishes scientific papers in the form of research and review articles, as well as case reports. The Editorial Board of the journal includes eminent personalities from the field of Fisheries and Aquaculture, who are involved in the regular review and editing of the submitted papers, insuring high quality and originality of contents.
The field of Aquaculture has been growing rapidly for food production in the last few decades. Several commercial fish species have been cultured intensively in narrow or enclosed spaces such as ponds, cages or tanks under overcrowding or high density leading to adversely affect the health of cultured fish with a potentially stressful environment and infectious diseases. The infectious disease-outbreaks have emerged as constraints for the development of aquaculture. Antibiotics and chemotherapeutics have been used to prevent or control bacterial infections in aquaculture for about 20 years. Unfortunately, the use of antibiotics for treatment is not successful and sustainable due to increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria, negative effect on the indigenous microflora of juveniles or adult fish, and the accumulation of antibiotic residues in fish tissue and environment causing human and animal health issues.
Additional Aquaculture research is needed to define the specific dosage rates and efficacy of various compounds for a variety of aquatic species and their pathogens and to decrease costs of the immunostimulants. It is expected that during coming years immunostimulants will find more application to make aquaculture sustainable. Therefore, immunostimulants may be an effective tool for controlling infectious diseases in aquaculture... Debtanu Barman, Aquaculture Health Management: A new Approach
OMICS Translation Services and the Journal of Aquaculture Research play a top formative role in developing, creating or rebuilding scientific knowledge invisible across linguistic borders. Authors from the field of Aquaculture and Fisheries now have the opportunity to share their valuable research from their native language to English or from English to other world languages including Spanish, French and German. This service of translation follows a process that includes strict review procedures for quality and efficient dissemination of knowledge all over the world."
