"Aquaculture journal is an Open Access online journal that publishes original research articles on all areas of Fisheries and Aquaculture, and aims to provide the most complete and reliable source of information on current developments in the field of Fisheries.
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 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
The journal publishes top quality research papers in the form of research and review articles as well as case reports that are made freely available to everyone worldwide.
With the newly launched OMICS Translation Services authors from any part of the world now have the opportunity to share their valuable research on Aquaculture across linguistic borders in different languages such as French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, and English. By translating your scientific paper into the mentioned languages we ensure an efficient exchange of knowledge and scientific experience. The translation process is always followed by strict review procedures to ensure absolute correctness. We believe that translation services perform a key role in the emergence of a connected scholarly community."
